    Just dryed out two weeks ago me and a couple of my friends drove back from New Hampshire to New york in the pouring rain man did it rain the whole trip. I was really suprized how well my 09 ultra held the road.there had to be at least 3 or more inches of water on the road the whole trip. My only problem was my eye glasses i coundnt see they kept fogging up the whole time any good glasses to where when it rains :bigsmiley29:

    I think they all do, depending on the temperature.

    A fork baffle may help for it directs the air down instead of picking up the steam filled air and blow it up over the tank.

    When its raining that hard a full face helmet is about the only thing of much help, I ride in the rain in Florida year round and I know what you are talking about:s

    That sounds good in theory but I've got the baffle on my bike and it doesn't really help in the rain.

    Like Jack I ride in Fl and in the rain. I bought a good pair of snow ski goggles and got an anti fog spray. The goggles look a little strange because they are rather large, but in the kind of rain CAVS1429 is talking about they keep the rain out and I have good side vision.

    I've ridden in some heavy rain but not for as long of a ride as you - but I've had some good luck with some glasses called 7EYE - they make sunglasses as well as clear lenses and have a foam around the frame that sheilds your eye from wind, they also have a anti fog coating on the inside of the lense that works well for me - I wear contact lenses and can't and won't ride without them. If you want to check it out here's a link to their site -
