Default Just because I....

drive truck for a living, I somehow became the lead rider of my friends that I ride with....no big deal. They think I know every road...I don't! We agree where we want to go and off we go. Depending where we go, it may take an hours, it may not. No big deal....we'll get there
Any way, recently some bikes in the back has to stop for a red light. I looked in my mirror and saw them at the light. So I found a safe place to pull over and wait.....here it comes....I clicked on the 4 ways and the engine died....oil light came...display went blank....WTH!!! Concern set in until I realized that I hit the kill switch!!!!
The 4 way switch is one left....not the right!!!!

I have hit my kill switch on a highway at rush hour when I was looking for my hazard switch. That'll wake you up in a hurry!

Flipped on the high beams in place of the 4ways several times and the other way around. Guilty of the kill switch over 4ways already as well.

How about up shift in place of down or the opposite, the moment it takes to figure out all is not bad you're just human...

I should let you guys take a ride around the block on my aprilia just to see how many times you beep the horn instead of hitting the turn signals. The two buttons are flipped on that bike from the normal signals on top, horn on the bottom arrangement.
