    Would've preferred not to give you a reason to charge across the sand trap, but I'm glad you guys were there

    Bent the footpeg hanger and a clip on. It'll take a hell of a lot longer to fix me than it will to fix the bike

    Makes me feel like I should have kept my mouth shut !

    Standard H4 bulbs on the conscience, no problem as long as you have the hands of a ten year old girl......

    Guessed wrong

    I actually have my ute at the track when marshalling now for random things like that, plus riders on ART days... only time I know of it occurring (you)... I don't marshall for Hamilton

    I broke a headlight on the HD.

    Went to the agent they asked if it was smoke,pattern or jeweled as there is 3 types.

    I said it was clear which was the jeweled one. The guy went out back and came back with a box and said that is $72 and it came with a new bulb and small wiring harness.

    No such thing as "just a bulb" John! The standard 65w bulbs which my Street Triple came equipped with were abysmal compared with the same wattage xenon bulbs made by Ring Automotive I used on the Grand Challenge. Got them from Autobulbs Direct in the UK at a very sharp price.

    Cheers,

    I am a little surprised with all the riding on 3 ST's you have never had this issue arise. I have had it twice and know better than to muck around with it myself. I have the Honda dealer change the bulb.

    Haha, but a highly important bulb! I'm sure the lekky version of me had nothing to do with it That said, knowing how to change the bulb is always important, as you always have to change them at the worst of times!

    I think it was the 2009 Grand Challenge, about 2330 on the way to Te Kuiti, I'm following my boss, mate behind us, that I lose forward light (only one bulb on the KTM). Instant, WTF, dash lights are on, bike is running, but no headlight. Try high beam, ok, low beam, nothing... right, I've lost low beam. Sit on high beam until Te Kuiti.

    Mate (first and only GC) panicks like crazy in Te Kuiti, telling me that's the ride ruined, no way can you wait until dawn before continuing, OMG, what are you going to do etc. Once he's mostly finished freaking out I calmly reply I'm replacing it Yes, I reply, I'm carrying a spare. Bit of messing about and 15min later the bulb is replaced and we're all good to go.

    Then there was the failed quick trip to Cape Reinga that ended in Kaitaia with no low beam. Then I lost high beam returning and rode by indicator light. A mate picked up a speeding ticket coming north to Whangarei with spare bulbs (some of which were also blown). Perhaps that explains why the BMW has all the "backup" lights

    Ah... lights

    Well, it's your blog, so you do whatever you like. However, don't put the blog in the comments section.

    Personally, if I blog, I write a lot (which is why I don't blog often ) so a 3-4 day trip might be 2 blogs, and they're written then posted. Something longer, it's easier to split each day into a single blog. I'd never bother making one day multiple blogs.
