So, SHE's back! Only problem is now, that the driveway is covered in ice! Is there a fix for that?

"Which way you going?" they asked.
After some thought, I replied, "Doesn't matter, as long as I'm going."

I always spray my switches/locks with wd40 whenever they get wet (wash/rain) never had any issues.

The ride may be fun, but in the great scheme of things, it really is the destination that counts.

VA, did those switches have any kind of weather proofing at all?

None; they are the stock switches. It was odd really. I've seen corroded switches before. A lot worse than these were. They simply looked a bit dirty. I really doubted that I'd found the problem when I got it apart, but after it all went back together (I never reassemble dirty parts!) it worked like a charm.

Could it be the ghost of Lucas returning to haunt me? :012:

Is the bike kept inside or outside? If inside, is the garage a heated one or cold? And do you have laundry in there as well?

I'm asking because I may have an odd corrosion problem also. Been away for a month and lots of condensation in the garage - despite a permanently running extractor fan!

Yeah, lots of temperature variations lately, so condensation as well.
You may try a dehumidifier, but they tend to freeze up below about 40*F

I use a dehumidifier in the basement, but the garage is just too exposed. And we've got the first real winter forecast for this weekend  -snow and ice I mean.
