  1. Hey Andrew and Cathy, it was nice chatting with you today at the end of the world. Maybe, I’ll see you down the road.

    Hi Cathy & Andrew- Absolutely love your blog and your adventures in South America. Remind Cathy that I am “Will” who she met at the French Toast with Alex,. Daniella & Tony. Just saw Alex and Paul at Daniela’s birthday party and just connecting the dots that Cathy is Alex’s sister-in-law. Anyways be safe and enjoy. Cheers Will

    Just heard that a new one will cost 500 us! Can only get it in Santiago chile!
    I used the workaround 2 since I could not arrange a relay to prevent the 5amp draw on the battery wiping out the can bus of the electronics. So the pump only actually runs as needed – no change to the fuel consumption though!
    We did have part 2 of mech issues- dead battery in the middle of nowhere on a ferry between a blizzard and a gale force windswept pampa! Managed to jumpstart the bike somehow- more later!
    Great to hear from you!

    Great story, boet! Interesting articles on the site you linked to. I can imagine your deligh when you found it.

    Do you plan on getting a new controller? You probably should – reading the inforamtion your link – it is very likely that you will get miserable fuel consumption with the pump running full bore all the time.
