    I went back to sleep anyway. Today I am going to work on the wiring on the DRZ again. Hopefully I will be able to get the right combination of wires to get the key switch wired in. The damn thing doesn't have a plug on the end of it so I have to hard wire it.

    With Albie's generous offer to help me this morning the new wiring harness and the old key switch are wired up and everything is functional again. So the Drz lives on. It's really nice to have a color sighted person to help you when you're wiring stuff. All that's left is to rewire my accessory circuit. Thanks for the help Albie.

    Thats why I recommend an inline filter. The petcock filters are almost as dependable/effective as an 87 yr old crack head working girl. I have had perfect luck with the brass insert Visufilter. Just do it!

    Dam that is a heck of a crash. If your not wanting to watch the whole thing start at 5:00. Guy was doing pretty good for crashing that hard.

    I've had that nightmare before. Lucky dude. Almost was a whole lot worse. Lucky he landed on the first ledge. I'm sure we all have had close calls that could have been that bad or worse. Just get us old timers started talking about crashes. :evil
