In spite of the weather being awesome, I decided to make myself useful in the motorcycle context and went to the man cave to fix those turn signals. It was a piece of cake so I decided to proceed with some other stuff while I was at it… Fortsätt läsa Quality time in the man cave
“This wiring stuff is pretty easy. I sure know what I’m doing.” Well, that one came right back to bite me in the ass. After having replaced my broken rear turn signal on the KTM yesterday (and the other one for a coherent look), I believed that I was the master of voltage, current and resistance.

Why fabricate something when your existing setup works fine? Many don’t seem to grasp that. It’s the same kind of people who thinks “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” is a good advice. I am the opposite kind. Why? Because I can. It’s as simple as that.
