Sun Effects on KGT Display Panel
I rarely park my K1200GT in the sun. Twice since I've owned it, I parked it where the sun was behind the bike, without really thinking about it. It wasn't hot, but the sky was clear. When I got back on the bike, the display was very faint and unreadable. It took as long as an hour before the display was fully "restored".
Does this effect cause permanent damage to the display?
Do you do anything to protect the display when you park? If so, what do you do? (Yeah, yeah - cover it up, but how do you keep the cover from blowing off?)
