  • Riding in the rain

    Hi too all. Since its this time of the year (winter) and the weather is horrible (rain) was curious if you guys and girls have any regrets riding your bike in rain, coz if ride it too often in the rain, rust will start to build up somewhere on the bike yeah? I really hesitate when riding in the rain, i think it just destroys my baby's metal work

    cheers for the replies

    Yeah man parts of my bike start to fall apart when it rains.

    Kinda sucks.

    But you gotta do what you gotta do.

        Hah I have a polished frame and swingarm
        rain is my mortal enemy, it equates to hours of polishing
        but I would rather ride in the rain than not ride

          Full throttle round corners will help keep balance.

            Only riden the bike twice in the rain but theres signs of discolouration on quite a few bolts, metal bits-and-pieces, etc.

            These things happen when its your only means of transport....

              But when those engineers sit around the table designing these bikes, don't they consider the element of rain?

                Engineers don't design bikes dude.

                I do.

                  ..............

                  i dont think spending half their r&d budget on figuring out how to waterproof the whole bike was on the top of their list.

                        A few years back I had a yamaha Trx as my only vehicle which got ridden regularly in some some really heavy rain (think along the lines of what we had tonight). It didn't suffer at all. Just remember to pay a little extra attention to the chain if you ride it in the wet on consecutive days. Just give it a little extra bit of lube.
                        Can you help with foster care?
