4 months without a bike - due to a snip

4 months ago, I finished working on my ST1100 and pushed it off the bike lift and into the spare garage.
Got the K1200lt onto the ramp to strip down and replace FD amoungst other things.
1st fine day I get the ST out - wont start.
Cant get it back on the ramp as the K12 is in bits.
So decide to finish the K12 1st
Just did that and got he ST on the ramp last night.
Wiring problem, traced to.........................3 CUT wires.
Oh boy, WHY did I cut those wires? I have no idea!!!!!!!
4 months without a bike 'cos I had a temporary laps of sanity.
4 months of riding that I will never get back
But now I have 2 bikes to choose from that work
