Good to know about the trailwings. Dont think I'll be dropping the clutch like that anytime soon.
We cut a ride short today in Dover and got about 5 minutes of light rain on the way out. Made it through to dry weather the rest of the way home. You are right the windshield gets wet, your faceshield starts beading, and I am sure without my wind/waterproof liner in my jacket I would have got a tad damp. I'm sure any longer than the few minutes and my mesh overpants WITHOUT the liner would have not been good.
Bass_bronco, you guys that ride in this stuff all the time have my sympathy and admiration.
