  • I was WRONG!?

    Well, I hate when I am wrong, but I am a man and will admit it. Recently I installed a set of Boogey lights on my bike, I noticed that the first time I rode with them on the fuse for them blew, could not figure out why, and since I am an electrician I knew they could not be wired wrong. Well I should have thought about assuming things, what happened was a stupid mistake, when I plugged the connector in on the tank above the spark plugs the tank was raised up, when I bolted it back down I never saw that the connector was hitting on the motor mount causing a small cut in the wire. What a stupid mistake, but the important thing is that I learned a lesson, and a valuable one at that. :boo

                    Did you ever think you may be right about that?
