    Ridgeline Retrieval - a month and a half after hitting the deer in Colorado.

    I believe I posted about hitting one of three deer that ran across US 285 just North of Salida Colorado back in late March.



    My 2019 Honda Ridgeline has been patiently waiting for one last part, the Grill Emblem Mout Plate which is also the Radar transmitter/receiver for the Adaptive Cruise Control. It finally came and after a trip from the Salida body shop to Colorado Springs for Honda Dealer calibration, my Ridgeline was ready to go.

    As my bike trailer was in Salida I opted to ride the GSA to retrieve the Ridgeline.

    Day One - Spearfish to Laramie













    Day 2 Laramie WY to Salida CO to Spearfish SD

    Nice report. What is that cover on your rack where the rear seat would be? Mine looks unfinished with the seat off.

    If it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is.

    Thank you, I tried to search but I didn't know what to call that part.
    Good to see everything working out. Thanks for doing the report.

    There are two parts to the kit as I recall, the plate and the mounting kit. You need both.
