I'm right handed and left eye dominant and turn to the right much better. On left turns I have to coach myself wait, wait, wait, okay turn in! Otherwise I'll apex too soon.

WTB, Bezel from broken Zumo 660

I lost the plastic bezel off my Zumo 660 when it fell off my bike at 50mph. The Zumo survived its crash, but the bezel was lost. Does anyone have one? Garmin will not send me a replacement!
