Packed it for EOM. Then got up 2 hours early for work so I can get on the road 2 hours earlier.
Left the Bazooka at home as after reading the "Shooters out there" thread we should be well covered in the hotel parking lot.
Actually, with bringing the wife there isn't much room left anyway. And that's way on me overpacking than her.

Looked at it in the garage, with tank bag on, waiting to finish loading after the conclusion of work. None of the next 4hrs will i be mentally connected.

You know the FJR does not have a “diff”?
Let's see, pinion gear, check, ring gear, check. Converts horizontal rotation of driveshaft to vertical rotation of the rear wheel, check. Takes hypoid gear oil, check. JSNS
Allows two driven wheels to turn at DIFFerent speeds. Check? :D

Wouldn't have been much of a trip if the wheel bearings scrambled in the middle of it.

Yup. 3 input/outputs while the FJR only has 2 where 1 always turns at a fixed ratio to the other.

The 3 in/out is also known as a Power Split Device. Toyota uses one in their hybrids and calls it an eCVT. Engine on one, wheels with a big electric motor on another, and a smaller electric motor on the 3rd. By controlling the speed on the smaller motor they can get the engine to spin at any RPM desired for any given road speed. Sometimes the little motor is a generator, sometimes it is a drive motor. Is used to start the engine. Brilliant, simple, and elegant, yet enormously complex requiring software to implement.

Packed up, ready to hit the NC mtns in about an hr. Buddies from High Point, NC; Lynchburg, VA and up near Philly coming along, promises to be a good long weekend. All you other boneheads traveling this weekend to & from you-know-where-- you be careful out there!
