I will drive it instead to Colorado Springs to see my Cadet son at the Air Force Academy next Tuesday.

Any touring tips?

Has anyone experienced riding in the rain? I want to go to Colorado Springs around September 1, and rain seems likely

2021 GTS, just purchased.  Should have a 9 gallon tank, but my gas gauge seems to funtion on a 4.5 gallon logic, meaning it indicates empty and the light turns on, even though it only takes 4.5 gallons to fill it back up.  I have done this now twice in a row.   It seems that I can just continue to drive, but now I am blind as to the real fuel level.  Any ideas?

Difficult to engage cruse? Not that bad when you understand the display
Just noticed after trying to activate cruise that the odometer display changes when its activated. 

See pix.  Didn't notice that when unsuccessfully trying to engage cruise!   

First pix is off
2nd is on and ready to be set
3rd is locked on 68 mph


Here is what the indicator looks like with the speed locked in. 

The empty space is when you have not selected the cruise speed. 

Also moves with increase decrease of the other toggle.
Ugh hard to text it easy to see it.

1st pix is off
2nd is set me
3rd pix is when its set at 68mph and enabled.

Wow, have about 1k miles on my VV 2022 always do a oil change like most other new trikes n bikes.  Gets rid of any assembly dirt, machining dust, assembly lube. And I have no idea what oil they put in. So I do it just for practice. Read on.....

In any case, Stated on the filter it says use PF64 AC DELCO.  I go get one and a wrench to fit it.

Turns out the wrench that fits the PF64 does not fit what's on there!!!  I have at least 7 dedicated  oil filter wrenches nothing fit the original! 

The original mounted has no numbers on it has 15 flutes on it. Nothing I had fit the original nicely, has to use a universal.

That old filter was torqued on so hard, it took over 200 lbs. to get it off. Thank GOD, I was in my garage with every tool available. took several hours to do an oil change, rather than few mins.   Was a 15mm drain bolt that was a bit tight also uses a silicon rubber washer.  Lubed and Hand tightened new filter. this filter looks little fatter and deeper. 

In any case, try to get that bugger off where tools are available as opposed to a car n coffee event.  Found more loose fasteners and used RIVNUTS for hood. They work wonderful after you get them aligned. I used the tool after hood was on to snug them at perfect spot for no rattles. 

FRESH oil is wonderful!!! new filter!!  Now I know everything it torqued to perfection and known oil type brand.  SMOOOOTH! 

Also lubed every hiem joint and ball joints as they squeaked over every divot or sewer lid. Just an FYI

Has anyone had this issue before? I got a 2022 Vanderhall Venice GTS a few months ago and after around 600 miles, the check engine light came on and the code is P015B.

I had some issues in the past:
- two broken Original gas cap leading to evap system issues (running with a after market gas cap)
- odometer reset to 0 once (waiting on the dealer for parts)
- now the newest issue seems to be on the o2 sensor

Does anyone know if I can buy the o2 sensor elsewhere instead of having to wait for several weekends on Vanderhall?

I was wondering if a U Haul car dolly would work to tow a Vanderhall?
Or suggest something?
