    Helpful Hazard Discovery

    This may be old hat to a lot of folks here, but yesterday I discovered you can cancel the hazard lights by engaging a turn signal.

    I had mentioned early on in my TTSE ownership that the hazard switch is in a lousy spot because I use it while lane splitting, and reaching for it is not at all awesome, but with this discovery the reaching has been cut in half.

    Onward!

    That's a very useful discovery and is not mentioned in the Owners Handbook !

    Thanks for sharing  :169:   :821:

    Yes, very useful!

    If only they could have made activation as simple. I.e.press and hold the indicator cancel for 2 or 3 seconds to activate hazards. Much easier to reach and would eliminate the separate switch which is not convenient anyway.

    Good info.

    I noticed, whilst on unrestricted Autobahns, that you can't set the cruise at above 100mph.  Go figure.

    I agree....I'm guessing that the bods at Triumph only thought about one switching them on whilst stationery/broken down rather than turning them on at speed to warn other drivers behind you of sudden braking/lose of speed due to traffic ahead.

    It were 80mph on the 1500 Wing that I owned, that were fast enough I thought.
