The bikes a week old (to me, 4 years to the world) i get to an intersection turning right across oncoming traffic, every riders favourite thing i know. Still getting used to the throttle and clutch of my new bike i find a clear spot and go to move off... CLUNK the bike stalls. 'WTF learn how to use the clutch d**khead!' goes through my mind as i punch the starter button but then looking down to realise the dash is off and the bikes got no power at all! i do the duck paddle of shame to the side of the road after getting beeped at 40 times and find a quiet spot. Nothing, bike doesn't want to start. No allen keys in the tool box to get the fuel tank off and get to the battery (there is now..) so i ring my mate who says he'll head down with some tools and jumper cables i move the bike about 5 meters to a safer spot and just for giggles punch the starter... brooom, bike comes back to life.. i HATE intermittent electrical problems they are the worst, as i really don't want the bike conking out on me in situations like that what could it be i think? Dodgy alarm install? pannier indicator wiring frayed or not done proply? looks like a short circuit and i swear i could hear sparking when i turned the key.. anyway, back on the bike and make it home, rip the tank off with allen keys to discover the positive terminal sitting loose on the battery! glad it was something so simple but no idea why it wasn't done up tight to begin with... all better now thats my story.
