Brutal on the OP? I think not.
We all have had, and will continue to have instances of brain-fade, forgetfulness, etc.
But we dont blame the machine for what the human does or doesnt do.

I probably used to know that. I did use the parking light feature, once, in 1990 when I parked my v65 in a dark area to watch some fireworks. Left the light on so I could find my way back.

I used to work with a guy who made a rat bike out of one...then a guy from New Zealand worked there for a while and he had one as well...ALL stock. He rode it every day rain or shine and always wore his black leather jacket ( had silver studs all over it) Great guy and I learned a lot of Kiwi and Aussie slang from him.
