So I recently got my V-Strom and I do not intend on putting it away for the winter.
Being near major highways and a major metropolitan area, the roads get plowed well. Unfortunately, they also get salted.
What can I do to protect my V-Strom from corrosion?
I've heard that the older version suffered from corrosion problems. Do the newer units have any protective coating?
Is there anything I should avoid spraying with water when I rinse/wash it down?
If it's above freezing and there's no danger of black ice, I'm thinking I can ride.
