Motorcycle Migraine Therapy

Time to call in the bomb squad and save the day

All wired up and ready to ride.

Today it’s -1°c and snowing. See? I’m the Weather Canary of Calgary.

However, this post is not about my epic migraine and all that entailed. Today’s post is about how I decided to ignore my blinding migraine and went to the garage to work on my bike in the sunshine. I mean, if I’m miserable inside, why not go out into the sunshine and take my mind off it? Other migraine sufferers at this point are shaking their heads, “Why would you do that?” they decry. “Stay inside in a dark room, you doofus!

What a pain in the ass.

So, I did what any self-respecting Wile E. Coyote would do and placed an order for switches with ACME (Amazon). My order arrived a while ago, and I’ve been plotting and scheming ever since. Where would I add the switch? How would I access it? How will I weather-proof it? And why did this switch come with Red and Black wires already attached? I’m confused. Is one lead positive (red) and one lead negative (black)?
