I just got my almost new 610 and had break down on my very first short ride, not a good start. The green light on the instrument panel started flashing and the bike started stuttering. All lights then went out and the bike stopped, and was dead as a door nail. I was stuck in a precarious location where bikers have been attacked in the past, and was not a happy camper. Luckly my mate has a landcruiser and could reach me before the muggers did. Long story short, turned out that the positive battery terminal bolt had vibrated out. I suppose it could happen on any bike, but I've never experienced this before. I hope it is not a bad omen. To make things worse my mate who collected me had told me before I bought the Husky that I was mad. He then pointed out to me that this could never have happened to him on his XR 650 R (unfortunatley he is right there).
