Just wondering - how many riders deliberately avoid taking their beloved scoots out in wet weather? Those of us who ride to work won't have much choice. You hear stories of HD aversion to H2O and you often see adverts claiming "this bike has never been ridden in the rain". Didn't know there were so many HDs in the Atacama Desert . I generally avoid getting it soaked if I can but I've got a good drier if it's needed.
