    Sounds heat related to me. I would suspect either the HAL sensor or the coil.

    I got SWMBO out for a ride. High of 35. But heated gear keeps us toasty.
    The lake is as smooth as glass.

    Was this Mrs. Octane's 1st ride in the Expedition? How does she like the seating and suspension and wind protection?

    Not the first ride. She says it’s quite comfortable and she likes it. It’s better than the Kwack because she sets higher. She gets quite a bit of wind around the sides. But she says it’s a motorcycle so to be expected. I’m sure she’s gonna like the Daytona better.

    I had decided that I could put wind wings on my rig, but when they arrived and before I started to mount them, SWMBO asked what they were for and she said she rather liked that wind. She asked me to not install them.

    I still have them if anyone is interested in them:

    Went over to BDM Leather and Canvas to pic up the BBQ griller cover.
    Joel was interested so I brought the trailer and showed it up.
    They did a nice job on an awkward shape and stayed with the quote.
    Got to like that
    Apparently he did the chutes on my Nephew & mates, land speed Hudson Terra plane.
    Thats the Mk2 version after it went sideways at 180mph.

    After last weeks breakdown I replaced the coil yesterday. Went for a ride today, no problems. Bike ran very well. When it used to start , it would give a little cough sometimes, not really a backfire, just cough. Nothing today at all. Maybe just my imagination. I measured the coil and the ohms readings were different to the manual, primary was 2 instead of 0.5 and secondary 7.1 instead of 7.5
    I dont know enough about this stuff, except to say it is running better and didn't stop. All good. Thanks for the advice. Cheers

    Just a little ride around today in South East Netherlands. To keep the hacks in shape.

    It was a bit cold: between 1 and 2 Celsius, about 34F.

    I think I buy myself some grip heating for Xmas.

    Worse than that, it was the damned sidestand switch. I figured that leaving the stand on and not messing with the wiring harness made more sense than chopping the harness to bypass the switch, I was wrong.
    At least it is an easy fix.

    Quite often the stands are handy for maintenance when taking the car off.

    Yup, but with a left hand mount car the lug on the subframe for the lower rear mount stops the sidestand being deployed, so it is only any use once the subframe has been removed.

    "so it is only any use once the subframe has been removed."

    Not very well thought out.
