I was doing that and found by hitting a bump or something it would cause the PCV to stop and reset thereby killing the motor. Usually it would start right back up by the time I pulled over.
So now I leave the USB cable in the left saddlebag so it's handy when I need it but not plugged in.
I've made my Summer tune and am in the process of making the Winter tune. Once done, I will disconnect it from the AT unit unless I feel a need to plug it back in, like maybe trip to high elevations or something.
On another note, after reading about someone using one of Lloydz mechanical advance unit that goes under the right side engine cover to advance the motor 4 degrees I decided to give it a try since you can do that with the PCV. It worked ok on the first ride but on the second right it started running bad and dying on my so I went back in and just left the first vertical (0%Throttle) column at 4 under "Ignition Table" that you have to create. It was mentioned that it helped to smooth out the idle and so far I have to agree. To make things smoother yet; I made the second vertical column 3, the third 2, and the fourth 1, to make the transition slower. Like I said; works well so far.
