Sobb Story

Rode to work yesterday, and as the day comes to a close, it starts looking like rain. I leave work and try to beat it home and 5 km before my exit I start getting hit with raindrops. I say to myself "I'm good, I can make it"...Then my bike starts shuttering and then stops shuttering. Wonder what that is?

Then it starts to rain as I take the exit. Before I turn, the engine starts to sound like someone was shaking a can of marbles and shuts down . As I hold in the clutch and shift to neutral while I coast to a stop...there it is.... IT STARTS POURING WITH THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!!!! Some may say, didn't you check the weather? Umm in Kuwait?? Yea right....and a thunderstorm in Kuwait in May isn't normal....

Needless to say, I was standing on the side of the road in a thunderstorm with a dead bike for a while waiting for the MV tech to scoop me up in the shop van....

Nice end to what started as a good day...

I can honestly say those guys put forth some effort when it comes to customer service. So, in that sense, absolutely nothing

As far as what happened, I don't know and I hope it is something simple like a relay or sensor
