Need a laugh? And some solid advice?

All to often we come to the forums when we are in need.. cry our problems to the world (fellow bikers) get advice fix the issue and run. Never taking the time to reply with a follow up on the outcome.
Much like praying on the rim of a toilet after a long night drinking.. "OHGOD JUST GET ME THRU TONIGHT ILL NEVER DINK AGAIN " And of course we do.. and without thanks..
Well let me tell yu how important the reply is boys.
02 vtx 1800. I came looking for an answer on relays passing lights etc .. I was helped in many ways and yes I did reply with pics.. and how glad I am.
Fast
forward a year 1/2. I dismantled my bike to install a new LED like show that I've been working on in my mind. I tested my theory at all my friends bike well still working on it and in the process decided when I had mine tore down to go ahead And get the girl painted. So off comes my fairing my fenders my Tank. In the process my good friend helping me remove the fairing clipped some wires and when I went back and looked I had no idea where in the hell The wires went except for in the Headlamp housing. So After pulling the light bulb and seeing me spaghetti I quickly came back to look up some of the old help I received in the past Here on this fourm Not only did I find that help but I also found my reply with beautiful color pictures showing my bike my wiring where it went and what it was doing and it made the repair a snap. ..
Here is a link to the bike I'm using for a test bed and some pics of our mess.

LETS MAKE AMERICA MISERABLE AGAIN





No matter how the media spins Islam then and now, Sharia Law and our U.S. Constitution are not compatible. Moral relativism and tolerance to the point of ignorance will result in national suicide.

Sp107e will be the 1st I play with but Andriano or similar will be the one that will allow me to hook lights to Riders heartbeat via pulse sensor the ignition for rpm mimic and brakes to light the road when applied I also have 4 red strobe led projection spots that face the drivers behind me when I hit brake to wake up the advancing rear dangers along with the brake flash But its stand alone I find on any wiring start at a newly installed power distribution block FUSED and NEVER tie in stock wiring when all possible .. Some time you must for relays but besides I leave well enuff alone if I can
