Beryl Beemer's birthday, and intermittant rear brake light
Well Beryl's birthday is fast approaching, being 2 Sept from memory, and the usual visit to the local garage for a renewal of the birthday certificate (pink slip).
$20 for the annual pink slip
Beryl will be a teenager, .....13years on.....and 210,500kms on the clock
hmmmmmmmm 13 year olds normally start to turn feral....maybe not a good omen??
Have noticed over the past number of years that the rear brake light goes intermittant.
Not wanting to get a defect notice from Mr Plod and Co, plus a "go away and fix" comment from the local mechanic, I have to soak the rear brake switch in Mineral turps overnight to get a good 100% response. I have also had to extend the wiring some 150mm as it was always a tight pull on the switch when in situ. I think I have phoned up once before asking the price of a replacement switch and for some reason $70-$80 was mentioned AGGGGHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh for this poxy little micro switch???? (which is why I go with the mineral turps I suppose.
Hmmmmm wonder what the cost is from the US beemer boneyard mob?
Geeeeee Mr BMW motorcycle builder, does having an extra 100mm or so on this cable really eat into your profit margins??.....boring!
