The other day I was riding and signaled a turn into a store. I turned my Burgman off, parked and removed the key. I walked to the store and looked back. The blinker was still blinking. I would have thought that with the ignition off. The blinker would be off until the ignition was turned back on. Is this normal?

Did you turn it off or rather go past the off switch to the Parking light. Now I don't know if the blinker would work or not if it was left on but I think you went past off to auxilary. You have to be careful about that.

back rest

I have a pad design, but haven't found a producer yet. It would be real easy to make a cover, but it turns out it doesn't really *have* to have a pad.
Due to the mid back rest, your rear doesn't touch the bracket. Something as simple as a Crown royal bag would do the trick. I think something like a neoprene pad (like a mouse pad material) and an elastic edging, like a fitted sheet.
As for "Ugly", I thought I made it clear this was a prototype and was just finished yesterday afternoon. I've been through 6-8 designs, working to get it:
1: simple
2: inexpensive
3: comfortable
4: simple to install so that even the lowest common denominator can do it
5: make NO CHANGES to the OEM equipment, no holes, no cutting,
6: keep the ablility to adjust the backrest front to rear
speaking of ugly, have you seen a Burgman without the plastic?
I'm open to suggestions, and looking forward to "constructive" criticism.

My apologies Jac. I really didn't mean to sound offensive. :oops: I give you a lot of credit. I do not have the ability to be as creative as you have shown yourself to be. I am actually very interested in your design, and we'll keep my eye on the progress. I removed my back rest and have been trying to figure out what to do as an alternative. This could be the very thing!

Again, my apologies, and I will keep my yap shut unless it is a constructive remark.

My Apologies All, Allen is absolute correct

I did not intend to drag this off topic. My sincere regrets.
To address your original question, While there's not a "accessory" position passed the "Locked" position, there *is* a "P" (parking lite) position. But.. it should only turn on the rear tail lamps and nothing else, no turn signals, no front lamps. Was it just a "fluke" or can you repeat the error consistantly? If you can, by all means have your dealer check it out. You may have a "lamp" power wire hooked up to the wrong connector on the ignition switch.
good luck.

Blinker Problem solved.

I live, I learn. Allwalk was correect. I had gone past the off position to AuX and the light kept blinking. With the switch turned to off, it did not blink. Thanks for the help.
