rear brake pedal

While we are talking brakes, someone tell me how much travel is normal for the rear brakes? I recently flushed lines added stainless steel cables and installed new rear pads--Yesteday on the way home from an air show I seemed to have a lot more travel to the rear brake than I was used to--fluid looks normal---I was wearing different boots than I have been riding in?

cntryby Holy CRAP...it was the bulb!

The person riding behind me obviously wasn't watching my brake light.

I checked fuses and inspected pads on the side of the road, fluid levels OK...etc. Servo's sound OK..maybe a tiny bit of gurggling after a couple of seconds.



On the way home, I hit the cruise,...nothing..the cruise has nothing.



Any ideas folks...I did a search but couldn't find anything like this?
Check/replace the brake lamp.

brakes, cruise & caution.

One day all is OK the next, as I leave my drive, I tap the brakes and the caution light comes on. I pulled over and restarted, all is OK... a couple of miles later I touch the brakes again and the light comes on.
