    Just got back from a long weekend ride to Sirmione, lake Garda (Italy) with an electical problem on my 2008 Nightster. Basically when I push the break (both front & rear) the left turn signal turns on and the red key (alarm) indicator lights. Went to the dealer tonight, but as usual the problem was not showing while I was there! Anyone has any ideas?
    By the way, Sirmione will host the HOG European meeting in a couple of weeks. If you have the chance, I recommend to go there, it's very nice, and lots of nice roads to ride on.

    No mods up to now. The bike has 1400 Km, just 200 short of the 1st dealer service (1000 miles). It actually runs normally, both engine and brakes, and got me home after 300 km ride with the problem showing the whole time.
