RT Russ Posted November 25, 2009 Share Posted November 25, 2009 Had a bad start to my day today. Got to work and realized I had left my access badge at home....that was a first since we went to a government mandated access card. Headed back home to get the badge, then turned around and headed back to work yet again. I did both of these runs at a fairly brisk pace to say the least. When I took the freeway off ramp and hit my brakes, both of the red lights started to flash alternatively. The brakes worked fine. I checked both circuits at low speeds then continued the 1.5 miles to work cautiously. When I got to work, I turned the bike off and then back on. I got the normal light sequence at that time so I got off the bike and put my helmet away. Then I noticed a small puddle behind the front wheel. A co-worker and I went out with a flash light and looked around until we found the culprit was the failed brake hose to the front wheel circuit. It was just seeping fluid from under the sheathing. I have parked the machine and ordered Spiegel SS braided lines. They will take 5-7 working days to get. Bummer, I was planning on doing some riding up the coast while the women folk did the Black Friday routine. Now it looks like I'll be caging it for a while. Link to comment
