Navigator Control Wheel
on: May 14, 2018, 04:14:10 PM
I’m convinced that after a long winter’s storage, the GPS control wheel on the handlebar is slightly more difficult to spin.  I’m not saying I need a pipe wrench to move it, but it certainly seems tighter.

Is this just in my head?  Is there a means of controlling the tension on that wheel?  :187:

All functions normal, in this regard.  Too normal, probably.  No, sir, the beer travel to my lips is smooth, steady, and ready.  :155:
