Not pathetic, rather just as designed.

1990s Euro regulations required manufacturers to produce wiring harnesses that are biodegradable. This affects all Oilheads and I imagine other BMW of the era. Also Volvo, Mercedes, etc., fwiw.

1st generation is always the problem child ... subsequent bikes are CANBus, with lots less wiring.
