RE: Valentine 1

	On my 90q I have an extra button thats not in use, I always
thought of 
	installing a kill switch for the rear brake lights that you turn
on and off at 
	will. and as a remainder that you switched your brake lights
off, hook the 
	switch  to one of the lights in the dask board next  to the
light for the 
	anti- lock off so you wont forget to put the lights back on when
you exit the
	highway. save both brakes and wear on clutch. I was thinking of
it, but 
	don't know how involved it is to hook that up. But I agree with
Mr. Kessel
	cause thats what I do too.
