On the corner, about a mile away, our neighbors had a couple of German Shepherds that loved to chase cars. So when I rode the bike, they would get in my way. I would stop to avoid crashing into them and walk the bike. I finally learned, just don't slow down and keep going. They'd bark and chase and give up just like chasing a car. Of course I had to go around the corner quickly and not stop at the stop sign. When I got my Honda Scrambler 90, i

  4. You know docc when I first got my drivers licence in the 70's avoiding dogs on the road was a routine occurrence and then the councils everywhere cracked down on having them properly housed and restrained. I've remarked to people a few times over the last few years about this, generally when you see the very unusual sight of a dog wandering about free. A very rare event these days here. Back in the 70's a friend just down the road used to ride a green frame Ducati 750SS to work every day (after he managed to get it started) and the next door neighbours dog with its starting attempt pre wa

  7. With the fuse open the regulator won't work, means won't charge. With the fuse solidly bridged (what I understand under "running it without a fuse") you go a rather high risk of fire in whatever form. Because then you have your mighty Odyssey directly connected either to the regulator or, in case of a shorted cable, directly to the frame or the engine etc.
