    08 Night Train has a ground wire that goes from the risers to the bars. What is the ground wire on the handle bars for ?

    It's in case you get hit by lightning while you are holding on to the bars. :D

    It's actually for the return circuit for some of the circuits on the bars in the switch housings.:s

    Then you can remove it, but if lightening is going to strike, you must, just like from a crashing airplane. jump at the last second, in this case only high enough to not be touching the bike when the lightening strikes. :small3d023:
