Cool project and great post.  But why is the frame bent and the rest of the bike intact?  Did a crashed bike get rebuilt on a bent frame so thoroughly that there's no evidence of the crash except the frame?

From what I can make out in the manual the Hazard input to the dash is pin 14
From the description the water is pulling the input to ground (chassis) turning the input on, I don't believe it's serious, you have probably seen other old Guzzis where the oil light turns on in the wet.
It could be the connector at the dash but I think it's more likely to be in the switch or associated connector, I suggest you give the connector and switch internals a shot of WD40, it can't do any harm.

Three months on the road eh, living the dream.

I thought the switch would be part of one of the main bar switches but its item (7)
Closing the switch switch pulls pin 14 down, pin 18 the red wire is system ground.
I think the LED stays On.

I used Module Master several years ago with an 07 1200GS and I highly recommend them. 

Some units they can repair/rebuild and some they cannot.

I had a 2000 GS that threw up a constant warning but I discovered that there is an internal relay that went bad.  I replaced the relay and was good to go.  However, I soon sold the bike with about 50k on it because of the known problems with BMW ABS.

I was told by the guy that started Module Masters that, with many of the failures, the culprit is the set of carbon brushes in the pump motor itself.  The stock pieces are cheap and deteriorate over time regardless of use.

On the dash you showed in your post and on mine, there is a push/pull switch in the upper right of the dash to bring power to the bike after turning on the key in the ignition at the rear left fender.  Was this installed to allow police to have an easy access kill switch for pursuits, emergencies, etc?  Great to see another one coming to life under your expertise.

Yes, the push/pull switch allowed the rider to shut power off to the coil while everything else was still powered up.

Watching it off and on.  The speed they averaged on the cobbles was amazing. 

Watching them climb today.  I believe they're going a little faster ascending than I would descending.

I checked with UShip several weeks ago on something else and the prices were way high so I'm not real excited about using them.
