The Skyknight has returned. Ok, to all of you who do dumb things involving your bike, well, I am really ashamed to admit this. You remember about a week ago when I had a crisis with my Hi-Lo beam on my headlights and I bought relays and they didn't cure my problem? Well, today I found the problem. I had somehow accidentally unplugged the wire going to the Hi beam light!!! Hey, you don't have to say anything. I felt really stupid, but after plugging it in everything worked perfectly. Now all I have to do is align the Lo beam by raising it a few feet. Any of you had any recent experience with this procedure?

Back in the day when TV repairmen came to the house, I had a friend who was one. I don't remember the number, but I was surprised when he told me the percentage of calls he made to find the TV unplugged from the outlet.

I have had recent experience with doing dumb things. Does that count?

If we didn't do dumb things every now and then, how would we know when we did something right? I just call it a "learning experience" :D
