Been spending the last few days working on Violet. I installed my Zumo 550 and wired it all in, including the XM radio, I cleaned up the wiring for my Autocom, and while I was at it I swapped out my calipers for ones that I painted a few weeks back...

Here's some pics:


Here's the Zumo mounted on a stem stand and my phone. The phone connects to the Zumo via Bluetooth and the Zumo it Bluetooth connected to my Autocom.

Hmmm - wonder where I'm planning to go?!

I installed a fuse block in the tail

Here's a close-up of the Zumo cradle

I ran 3 12-volt plugs to the front. Two are used for the Zumo and my phone charger, the third is available

Here's the two-way in the back of the tail

I keep it tucked in a pouch - just to keep it from getting too dusty and from getting scratched up. I also ran 2 12-volt plugs to the tail, one for the two-way radio, which I hard-wired, the other is available.

All the stuff tucked away

John - this is the first time having it back there. My unscientific testing has indicated that it's OK. LOL But I haven't seen what the distance could be. The Bash may be the first real test of it.

If it's not good back there, I'll just relocate it to the front. Also, FWIW, the XM reception is fine with the antenna in the trunk...

Violet is blue. ???
LOL - I know. See the post above on how I got her name.


Truth be told, after 'she called to me' her name, I did think of Sapphire, but it just wasn't 'her'.

I'm hauling. Ninja Killer was kind enough to loan me his trailer. Violet will have a passenger on the way back...
