Cool Clean Battery Cables

Hey all;

Had a interesting ride to work today. I ride 60 miles to/from work everyday. This morning at 5 riding on 95 used the brakes and the radio went dead for .5 to 1 sec came back. Used the turn signal to change lanes radio dead and the lights flash off and back on. Hit the brakes again bike dies for 1 sec and goes again. Now my cruise does not work,afraid to hit the brakes and dont you dare use the turn signals. Besides all that the bikes runs great. Get to work gliding to stops and hope the bike does not die. At lunch went out took the ground cables off the battery to clean them,not that bad, back on again and whalaa problem gone. Runs great. Just a note to check your cables once in a while so when you are out during the dark you dont end up in the dark.


45 years riding and still more places to see.
