Rode in. Nice ride. All my rain gear is in a back pack ready for this afternoon.

I am like Capt. Dan in a thunderstorm on my scooter. Bring it...

It's comin' down hard now. Hopefully it'll at least weaken before I hit the road around 11:30. My rain gear has disappeared, and I haven't replaced it yet, so I end up changing after I get to work if it's raining hard.

Yeah, that's one of the "features" of the SV I learned about shortly after buying it. Thankfully, I learned about it from forums. Mine hasn't showed that failure yet. Thanks for the warning.

It seems like it's just a "gotta clean it out" thing, not a "it breaks", so I take it out in the rain anyway.

I gotcha... dunno about those.. both of mine are gen 2... I guess drawbacks to both.. the Gen 2s don't hold up to track riding as well as the gen 1s... especially the 03

I felt bad for the motocop. Open face helmet and all.

I could've beat the morning rain, but drove instead, just incase.
