If so, How do you travel in weather like this???

I don't think I could have made it to work today without my truck.

And the truck comes in pretty handy on Track Days

Yeah I had water up to my headlights during TS Allison. My truck was in the shop so I only had the bike to ride. Just watch out for water in the intakes. I blew a spark plug out of the head on my 900RR.
