Interesting situation... I can see how a good jolt could cause it to press itself and shut off. Problem is, a toggle would be just as bad.

i would guess that it wasn't all the way "clicked" down. was just suck 90% down. then hit a bump at the right speed.
always "ready on the clutch" will save you in all lock up situations.

It's really easy to know when it's getting ready to pop. When you push it down you don't hear it "click" back up. It does enough for the light to come on but not enough for the "click" sound. When I don't hear the click, I just double click mine again. Seems to have kept me from having a "false" switch on feeling. I know it's not a dirt thing either, the bike has 40 some odd miles on it and it's done it since day one. I just kind of figured it's a cheap switch!
