seriously depressed about the bike right now.

i spent the past month installing the Trail Tech DC Stator, Skene dimmer, and Baja Designs XL Pro headlight onto the KTM... only to get everything turned on and working, and find out that there's a short somewhere.

the light turns on, dims to the appropriate settings based on the handlebar switch and all is good... then i turned the handlebars left to right to make sure that everything was fine... and blew the starter fuse.

i've been disconnecting things, checking all the wires, trying to see if i can find anything amiss... but i can't see anything, yet i keep blowing fuses.

the bike as been down for almost a month. :(

it took a little while, but i finally got the http://kaianine.com up and running again! i got to learn a few new technologies, and even had the pleasure of moving to a new server after building a whole new site only to find out that my old host didn't support the technologies i was using! fun times!

i've even got a first video uploaded and almost ready, but it got snagged by a copyright violation before i even released it... for music that i have rights to. still trying to get that settled!

I can't believe my eyes, I think hell has officially frozen over. the #DMV finally sent me my license plate... that I ordered EIGHT MONTHS AGO. this calls for a #dualsportdetour to celebrate! #ktm530exc #adv #mototherapy

seriously freaking out... my vlogging hard drive, with 2 years of footage is missing! it's probably just hiding under a pillow somewhere, but the stress that it might be lost is driving me nuts!

last #bikie from #2015 of the #ktm530exc on the final #dualsport ride of the year. #adventure #everide #dreamingofdirt #adv

scanning the horizons #dreamingofdirt, #dualsport #holidays, & hoping the new year will bring more #adventure with #adv #friends near and far. #braaap!

the best way to get work is the #dualsportdetour. I hadn't been up here since I got my first #dualsport, and it felt great to be out riding the #ktm530exc on a little #adventure before work even if it made me a bit late. #adv #ftw

#throwback to six years ago today (thanks #facebook!) my first #watercrossing ever, and I took it #likeaboss! #adv #dualsport

might not be to some, but the #sena lady saying #hello #phone #connected this morning was music to my ears... finally got the #ktm530exc out for some seriously needed #mototherapy after almost 6 months off the bike. didn't matter that it was 45 degrees out, i was jumping with joy! #rideconnected #adv #dualsport #ridethroughthewinter

got to #kickstart the #ktm530exc for the first time tonight finishing the #oilchange, battery dead from lack of riding. dinged the #paintjob on the #fastway adventure foot pegs, lol! now that the riding season is almost over, the bike is ready... my timing sucks. #adv #dualsport #ridethroughthewinter
