    Yep no electrics. Main fuse. G-O-N-E.
    Could not get it out. After a while I was successful & pinched the 20W headlight fuse & jammed it in. & headed off again.
    But not before cancelling my emergency pick up vehicle.

    Then 1 1/2 kms down the road dead again.
    Time for smoko - the bike I thought.

    And the solution - back on the phone...

    Silverhawk your a star & good reliable mate. Thanks also to Silverhawk's "henchmen" Tom Ford & Harry for the muscle power lifting the AT in the back.

    And the moral of the story: AT's dont always rock. :oops:

    Live another day to ride for a visa run. :yawn:

    Bike's fixed courtesy of Tom & Joe at Goodwill.
    A dodgy 10amp fuse to the ignition, that for all appearances looked perfectly normal, until a meter was put on it.

    Re AT electrical problems, once your bike starts to get older & with high kms it is not uncommon for burnt out connectors & sockets & fuses.
    I had a run of bad trouble 2 years ago & ordered a complete new wire harness that never came. In the meantime "we" David Lek & Mike Wilson hard wired many dodgy looking connectors / sockets.
    You almost get used to it once you get the kms up, but you've got a way to go I reckon Ron.
