I was on the way to my ladies house earlier, and all was fine an dandy till about half way through the ride. I went to use my turn signal, NOTHING. I was like WTF is going on? Turned it off, then back on. Nothing. I was close, so I just rode it to her house. Well, it was night time when I was riding. As I got to her house, I left the 6 running and looked at my tail light. It was black. No power at all.

Blew a fuse. Bad thing is, I was riding about 2 miles in the dark with NO TAIL LIGHTS. No one could tell if I was braking or not. Kind of scary if you really think about it. Oh well, I'm home safe. All that matters. :popcorn:

Had the same thing happen to me the other day, it was during the day after getting gas though. Glad your story ended on a good note

I rode with my HID's off after work once. The wire came loose and there was enough light on the freeway from the city lamps and cars.

Then I realized something was wrong as it was kind of dark, so I fumbled around where the ballasts were and the lights came back on. The truck in front of me must of thought I was flashing him.

My brake light's always on, good for keeping tailgaters off me and confusing who ever's behind me.

My clutch lever wobbles around a bit just enough to engage the brake light switch, constantly.

So what blew the fuse??? My flushmount turn signal came apart inside and shorted out and kept blowing the fuse. Something caused it to blow.

I have HID's and I assume the big draw at startup over and over again is what blew mine. Not sure if the OP has HID's or not

I have a MotoD tail light. Might be that?
Could be. How is it wired in? Check all the connections to make sure something isnt touching something else. If it blew once, it will most likely blow again. Get a good connection and I would heat shrink it or make sure its taped really well.
