I was on my way home from a trip to Moab and pulled into Stugis. Paid for a room, unloaded everything and went out to the bike to go for diner. The KIPASS, ignition system on my 08 Concours, decided to poo the bed. Kawasaki had been having a problem with the key assembly. You didn't need a key. Push down and turn, as long as it accepted the FOB, hit the start button. A ball point pen type spring would malfunction and wouldn't allow the bike to run.
I banged on the key assembly, for a few hours and it started. Long story short, left it running, repacked the bike, ate the room, and hit the road. I figured I get as close to home as I could get and rent a truck or decide then.
I ended up riding 1200 miles in the next 24 hours, and finishing the next 600 miles, taking short naps. The bike ran fine and even if you stalled, it would restart, as long as you didn't turn the switch off.
I skimmed a cement divider on the Pennsy Turnpike, and shaved my saddlebag, when I nodded for a second, but managed to keep the rubber up.
When I finally shut it off at home, it wouldn't start again, without the same beating, as when I left Sturgis. It got fixed under warranty, but I was never a KIPASS fan, from then on.
