Default 85 honda shadow 500

i loose power when i give her throttle or hit bumps.The blinkers go real fast some times and the tail light symbol comes on,on the dash.But then it will work fine for awhile and then it will start again.Does this sound like the regulator recitifergoing bad or a loose wire. Just bought the bike.
Thanks Craig.
