Well, I don't think it will happen, my bike has high enough miles, but... if it craps out in the middle of Kansas or Colorado, do I want to waste a day or two or three? Cheap insurance.. and if you carry one, you most likely won't have an issue.. if you don't.. murphy's law..
I remember riding out west with my buddy on his airhead RS and he carried a diode board, and a bunch of other parts, just in case.. and his diode board crapped out on him when we got to Washington state.
