Don't like riding in the rain?

Postby harryball » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:29 pm

Try this! From our 2016 trip, we landed smack dab in the middle of Tropical Storm Julia as it worked its way up the coast on 9/13. I had water in everything, but the rigs made it cranking out another 1500+ miles on this trip alone.

2008 - Tourist - "Ursula" / 30mpg / 32k as of 9/2017
2010 - Patrol - "The Rattler" / 32 mpg / 53k as of 9/2017
K28 tires on both rigs, pusher gets about 6000 miles give or take.

My main issue with riding in the rain is keeping the visor clean. I now carry a bottle of water around. Today I’ve had to use it twice because of dirty spray chucked up by trucks. Also I wear spectacles so misting up is a problem. The visor has a pinlock on the inside but that was misting a bit at the bottom too - does that mean I’ll have to put the spare on?

On examination (just now) it wasn’t sealing properly so hopefully not.
