(2) separate problems? Smoking wheel bearings? (not probable, maybe brake hanging up and smoking?) and overheating engine? (or steam/spew from coolant reservoir in vicinity of the front wheel)? What is really going on?
Yes, 2 separate problems.  Wheel bearing went out as described above.  Cooling fan isn't coming on, so radiator overheats and starts spewing coolant if stopped at a traffic signal.  Have to turn bike off and restart it when the light turns green.  More than likely just a thermostat, but its 97F here so it trips pretty quickly.

how did this happen?
Just riding it, noticed the wheel started squealing.  Got off the bike and checked the front wheel and found I was able to "wobble" the wheel back an forth about a quarter inch so I parked it.

Front wheel bearing smoked, and I'm thinking the thermostat as the fan isn't coming on. Just spoke to a dealer in Denver that actually has 2 wheel bearings in stock, waiting on my tow. Looks like I'll be late to arrive in Taos.

Departing now- I actually plan on staying the night in Boulder on Thursday at a friends; when are you planning on leaving Boulder Don?  Maybe we can meet up and ride down together?

I think GPL95928 figured it out.  My TPS warning has not come on since the dealer put 44 lbs into my tire, even though the pressure has wandered back down to 40 lbs.  Maybe it's a hysteresis thing.  Anyway try over inflating a few pounds high and waiting to see what happens after that.
Maybe for yours, but not for me.  On my last one we popped the battery out and read 1.4 volts off the 3.5 volt battery (Chinese no less  :233:)- they flat out went to the lowest bidder on these batteries.

Been through all those.  I assume you are going go I90 to 85 and cut down to the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore? Then cut back to Cheyenne and down I25 to Taos way?  I've done the reverse coming up from Texas headed over towards Vancouver.  Of course you might consider dropping down to Yellowstone when you are in the Livingston area.
Yep, that's my route.  I'm going to pass on Yellowstone as the family camped there 3 weeks ago. My return route is route 66 to 101, then 101 to 12, and 12 to home.

I don't have a Trophy but did buy some Sena SMH10s today.

I did happen to notice in the SMH10 Manager (software program) under Device Settings it talks about High Quality A2DP and if there are frequent audio disconnections while listening to music then it should be disabled (enabled by default).

I have no idea if this is related to the reported problems but thought it might be worth pointing out. :187:
This really embarrasses me.  I'm continually telling kids I'm training to RTFM, but here I am having not done so.  Thanks for pointing this out; I'll let you know if it works.
