    Maybe there is a "fusable link"? Looks like a wire, but actually a fuse meant to burn out. Sometimes used as kind of a last ditch fuse.

    Could be a valid signal in that a bulb or wire got loose somehow: in that case guenner is right and you too in maybe dropping power to the battery will solve it. Or it could be that the water just...

    On cars I've seen the ABS bleed make a huge difference. Big enough to change the entire feel of the brake pedal and to clear the ABS light on the dash. Per maintenance schedule: it just depends on...

    Maybe? Again, hard to say with no data! I just want to get out of this system and into one that I'd be more likely to wear. I'm sure they are both better than just an armored jacket. So someone who...

    I notice this while driving in a car as well, but it seems much more exaggerated when on a motorcycle that if you give space, people tend to give you space. Or they simply get annoyed and go around :)
