As has been the usual issue recently, I got halfway there and at a red light, I noticed the exhaust gasket leaking. I decided to ride there to make the appointment with the contractor, especially since the Amelia Island Plantation does not allow motorcycles (scooters too) through the gate so he had to meet me outside.
We looked at the minor issues he had with the design and he took me back to the scooter for my return.
I removed the exhaust and re-installed the gasket before the ride back and now figured out that the gasket keeps coming out because I have not been crimping the pipe back tight to the gasket before installing back on the header. I did crimp it this time. It made it harder to re-install but held for the entire ride home. Let's see how it holds up in the future.

It had to be built up because of the flood plain, but that also enhances the views
