Seat Heat going crazy!

Hi Guys...

My seat heat switch under the seat seems to be coming on whenever it feels like it.
Don't know if it's a short, or it's getting compressed and hitting.

Anyone else have this issue... any solutions?

I'm going to take it to the Dealer because it's still under warranty, but I thought I would see if anyone else had this happen?

THX!

Heating switch under the seat? Is this an older brick RS/GT?

In any case, you can at least unplug the seat heater until the dealer can look at it.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Hey Ken, nice new avatar. Didn't know you were a fan. I've got 2 more of their shows coming up at the end of this month. That will be #'s 34 and 35 going all the way back to Hemispheres. Taking the wife this time and can't decide whether or not I want to be 2 up on the bike for a couple of shows at the end of the night fighting traffic.

BTW, If you like that avatar, I made this one a while back.

Plus one on the avatar!

I guess you can see I'm a fan too. My screen name is my plate number.

Cheers,

Yeah, big fan from way back, when I had to read the lyrics with a dictionary open. I'd love to just poke around in Neil's brain for a while, or ride between shows with him and Bruno.

Robert, I enjoyed your Rush ride report and thought of you at the show. I guess I really need to check out Porcupine Tree.

The guy next to me asked who was my favorite? I just looked at him and said "all of them."

YYZED - what an awesome plate. I once argued with a girl in high school who told me her boyfriend wanted to put XYZ on his plates. I kept saying he's a drummer, right? Then you mean YYZ but she didn't get it. They broke up and she was cute so we went out anyway.

But I have to admit, I "borrowed" the avatar from someone on another forum. It seemed to fit my passion for the band and my frustration with BMW. Love the bikes - hate the company. In fact, I may just have that airbrushed onto the roundels on my bike.

What was this thread about again?

I know just the guy to do it. And he even has roundels, so you just send him yours when he's done.

OK, were off topic but summers coming anyway so a heated seat, or unplugging one, won't be much of a problem for a while.

Geez Ken, they were just in your neck of the woods.....did you go? You could always make a road trip up to Portland at the end of the month, or WA too and then over to MT. Couple of concerts, a bike trip......

Yes, Porcupine Tree....definitely! Start with: In Absentia, Deadwing, and Fear of a Blank Planet. Then move on to some of the more obscure stuff.

Also if you're a fan of better "progressive" music, though I hate the label "prog", an absolutely fantastic album is Milliontown by Frost . Bar none the best new find out of any genre that I have acquired in a LONG time.

If you like this stuff let me know, I've got hundreds more great suggestions. If you're anything like me your taste in audio equipment should be as good as your taste in bikes. If you have a good system those albums will make it shine. Top notch engineering, sound, and musicianship throughout.

Tempting . . . though it would be more fun to deliver them myself. Or you could, I suppose.

Rush, or PT? Actually, I'll be spending most of the summer in Portland on a job. I may have to swing over to Montana one of these weekends.

Rush.....and you say you're a fan. Not sure if you should be able to use that avatar if you didn't know they were there.

Portland show, actually Clark County WA Amphitheater Here 6/1

The Gorge WA 5/31 Here

They are Sat and Sunday. Great shows, might be time to get re acquainted huh?
