Bambi nearly went to meet mum today.

Out on a bimble to check out the KTM after last week's break down shenanigans I was about 50 yards behind a focus with a Harley type heading towards us.

Bambi runs out from my left in front of the Focus by about 5 yards and clears the carriageway in three strides but missed the Harley rider by about 6 feet.

Harley didn't slow flinch or budge off his line. (Or nod when I waved )

Was he sleep riding or just not seeing anything?

Must have been a reasonably serious rider as it was bloomin cold up here today.

OK just read it back and realised the answer it was cruiser, brakes are crap and they don't change direction that well so Bambi got lucky.

Which just makes him ignorant or he knows me and thought **** off :blush:

To be fair it was only a corroded wire to the Reg/Rectifier.

Why KTM put a connector between the battery box and the engine and directly behind the front wheel god only knows. At least it also highlighted the need to grease the main earth point too.

They can't move, flinch or move at all. That's because there so uncomfortable moving in his saddle would've caused terrible back pain to the old c!$% riding it, of this I have no doubt

Anybody who wants to protect electrical connectors really well, Google “Senson grease”. Tis what we use at work and it’s top notch stuff.
