    Short thing with some shots of a fix-up.

    So the exhaust exits too close and the bike vibrates.
    Blackened housings and melted lenses.
    Other than the remaining 3 left on the bike, this was the last (even remotely) repairable one in the boneyard.

    One answer to the old rhetorical question: "What's shakin'?"

    The old thumper, that's what...
    Ha,ha...
    That signal busting episode happened after gearing higher, heading out on the freeway and looking at my shadow.

    At that point I could see somthing dangleing! The vibrations must have made the diference as I was now rolling at 70MPH.
    I was departing on a 180 miler, so I just snipped the broken one off and went without it until later when I fixed it all up again...
    As seen in the clip.
