It's for GPS and what Paper said. It is very important that you not overlook the bifurcation markings on the side of the cord. Because if cross- wired you will have no idea where you are going and you'll feel like shit trying to get there. I think this is where the phrase, up a creek without a paddle comes from.This is why every BMW rider I know,yours truly included,secretly keeps route maps in their tank bag, as well as some sort of electrical or chemical backup for keeping us feeling poor but almost pre-orgasmic as needed. Don't call us ADDICTS-we are the elite.
