I also did not need the grips to be on high cause it wasn't 33 degrees out. Thank goodness it is a short ride to work. I was sniffing around for the source of the stink. Smells the worst around the controller for the grips. BIke Master grips is what they are. Anyone have this same smelly problem with their grips when the are new?

All fixed. Just have to ride ride ride. At least until the next thing. I think I fixed about all the normal problems people have with these. So I guess the motor will probably blow next.
