USB flash drive mounted for root only

This one has me puzzled.

I am running Sid with Xfce on my laptop and just now plugged in a USB
flash drive.  When the icon displayed on the desktop I right-clicked and
selected Open and then was prompted for an application to open the
directory.  I chose File Manager (Thunar) and received the dialog again.

I found the drive mounted for root read and write access only:

drwxr-x--- 3 root root 4096 Dec 14 12:35 nate/

yet mount seems to hint that it should be available to me:

/dev/sdb1 on /media/nate/B6A0-ED18 type vfat

FTR, 1000 is the UID and GID of my logged in user.

There is no stanza in /etc/fstab for /dev/sdb1 so it is mounted per
defaults.  Is the trouble coming from udisks2?  Or, do I need to write
some obscure udev rule to be able to read and write to this drive?
