Looking for the smallest on/off waterproof switch

Hi guys,

I'm looking for the smallest on/off waterproof switch possible to be placed on the bike - any suggestions?

Straight roads are for fast bikes, turns are for fast riders

I know it's been slow around here but seriously? Undeading a thread that died a peaceful death in 2011? Are we that desperate for conversation around here?

How has that worked out? Have you accidentally pressed the ignition switch?
I sometimes sound the horn while cancelling a turn signal...

Ya'll are flogging a dead thread. Alon, the OP hasn't been active since 2018. This thread died at a logical conclusion in 2011. Threads, much like Disney characters, take on lives of their own. Some flower and blossom into a mega thread that goes on for years.



Others, like this one, die a peaceful and logical death. The OP found his switch which was the point of the thread to begin with. End of Story. At least until a newb comes along and undead's a 9 year old thread in which none of the original contributors are still active.



Ya'll keep flogging this horse....or at least it's skeletal remains....sean
