Hi,Tom! I'm with you on that! That is a bonehead idea they came up with
to disable the `ped when the taillight burns out.Stuff like that really
bothers me.I take pretty long rides on my `peds,and I could get stranded
pretty badly on some back roads.Do you reckon we could come up with a
way to defeat this? I don't know about you,but I always check my
taillights and brake lights often.At night I also wear a laser red
flasher on the back of my hat or helmet.You know they could have come up
with a less drastic warning for people than to kill their engine!
I know that to be true,but I 'd hate to blow out a bulb 20 miles from
Home and not have a few spares and the tools to install a new one Than
only to have that blow as well.Seems something else could be devised to
alert the rider a bulb was out,rather than disable the engine.Since
most/many mopeds require engine to be running to light said bulbs,and it
won't run to check for bulb operation,if burned out.Guess one must also
carry a multimeter to check bulbs in tool kit also.I would rather have
my engine run and ride with no brake light. That is what hand signals
are all about,and an arm is more visiable    I M H O.

May your day be blessed.

I had the same problem with a Tomos, Brakelight out, it's a safety
feature so
you dont ride around without a brakelight.
