Ratcheting Windshield question / comparison
OK I have a question for you others who have started to take delivery of your VeeII's:
Does your windshield truly "ratchet" through all three angle positions such that if you push it ALL the way forward and release, it will come back to a different position each time, cycling through the three different angles?
-- OR --
Each time you push it all the way forward, does it simply come back all the way to the most slanted-back position, and if you want it to be at one of the other two more-upright angles, you have to carefully push it forward just enough to meet that angle, and release it so it stays there?
Reason I ask, is that at the IMS show when I played with the screen, it would "ratchet" through the 3 different positions as described in the first paragraph above. And, I believe I saw it act that way in the various videos we've all watched, and the descriptions all state it "ratchets" which by definition is stepping through the different positions each time it is fully extended.
But my windshield acts like I described in the second paragraph...which isn't what I recall from seeing the bike in person nor is really a ratcheting action.
It's not a big deal but still, I'm wondering if I have a warranty issue. or there was a last-minute design change, or maybe my memory (and mind in general) has become unstable and unreliable...
Thanks in advance for your feedback & comparison...
