The first example of spontaneous self-healing concerns the cruise control. (Coincidentally, one of two “service information bulletins” addressed during the 6,000-mile service was specific to cruise control-equipped GSs.) Halfway into a 550-mile round trip from Milwaukee to Indianapolis Motor Speedway to attend an EBR press launch, the cruise stopped functioning. I suspected the failure was water related—a torrential downpour started minutes after leaving home and didn’t stop until after I returned two days later—but I was skeptical because the symptoms felt mechanical, since I could no longer feel the positive detent when pushing the set/resume trigger forward. Regardless, it must have been the inundation because proper cruise function returned once the bike dried out—complete with the positive detent.
