    Hazard warning lights - observation

    Sadly I discovered something about the hazard warning lights today that I didn't know about.  I had to use them as I attended the scene of a car accident that my wife and children were involved in.  Happily the Volvo kept them all safe and nobody else was hurt but I got the call about the accident and went on the bike to get through the traffic that had built up as a consequence.  On arrival I activated the hazard warning lights and attended to my family.

    Returning to the bike I thought I didn't really need them any more so I pushed the button to turn them off.  I noticed they didn't go off though so I tried again - same result.  I then switched the bike on and then tried again and they went off as commanded.  I suppose they operate like this to prevent anybody from just switching them on or off.  Having now consulted the manual I see it is covered in there.  This is the first bike I have owned that even had hazard warning lights!
