Had this happen about a year ago and cruise wouldn't work either. Took it to the dealer and they changed the brake switch in the handlebars and all was good. Now it's staying on again, only this time cruise still works. They told me at the dealer that if the brake light is on the cruise won't work. I changed the rear brake switch just because it was cheap and easy to get to, no change. I can push back on the front brake lever away from the bars, still stays on. I can lift the foot brake up all the way, stays on. I can do both at the same time and still no change. There actually have been a time or two that the cruise didn't work, but the last 400 miles it has worked as it should every time I've tried it. I know the brake light is still on while I'm riding because I've had friends follow while riding to watch for it and they said it never goes out. Any ideas of something easy to check that I haven't thought of? The last time I took my bike to the dealer the tech came out to tell me when I picked it up "man your bike hauls ass". Not really what I'm wanting to hear now that I've invested in a 124. Also, nothing has been changed on the bike in over a year a half as far as bars controls or anything like that.
