Be careful not to over insulate stuff, it may cause it to vibrate more than if it was solidly mounted.

Is not so much the box that needs protection from vibes, it's those pesky skinny wires that they use that fail due to vibration.

Hi Carlo: Ron
North Shore Lake Huron, Ontario Canada, home town Capreol just north of Sudbury Ontario. Presently living in Spanish.

I cannot list the motorcycles I've worked on or ridden - Just too many.

The thing is: I loved to race and I'm still alive. Gotta say that 70 SFO 750 Breganzie is a racer.

Best laugh I had in a long time - but don't blame me for instigating it ;o)

Today’s low impact jobs: replacing the worn handgrips and replacing the horn that now resides somewhere at the side of the Putty road. Luckily I kept the ‘high’ tone one so that’s now firmly installed. (Something else to check periodically).

Lazy 70km loop for coffee in Stanwell. Shortly after I took this photograph I can across a P plate who’d lost it on the first of the tight left handers and was picking himself up having wedged the bike under the armco. He was mostly ok, had to be quite foreceful to stop him wandering around in the rode on the bend, clearly in shock and adrenaline meant he couldn’t feel his injuries, his wrist likely fractured. Cyclists who were right there when he crashed called an ambulance while we dragged his bike out and got it out of that danger spot so other riders didn’t fixate on it.  Left him with another rider waiting for ambo. Nothing else to do really.

I stuck the same thing on the resent Putty ride, also a Red P player. Its good to see some young people still interested in riding, not so good when they crash though. I did a First Aid course when I was in the Scouts mega years ago, but arriving at an accident scene is way different to doing a course. One major difference is knowing when to back off when the injured party insists on getting up and wondering about, you cannot very well put them in a headlock so I guess stopping them getting run over it about all you can do. I don't carry a First Aid kit, there is not much in the way of gear other than bandages to control bleeding in them anyway. One thing that happened with that Putty crash was the woman who crashed was wearing tight leggings and here knee was swelling up so they needed a knife to cut them away to see what was happening. Thats something I will add to my tankbag, a Muiltitool for that kind of thing.

Ye just trying to keep him out of the path of oncoming traffic, especially bikes still barrelling through in both directions.
