I just picked up my '06 DL1000 last Thursday and I've noticed that the ignition switch is situated so that it can collect water pretty easily. This was a problem on my old bike too (Yamaha FZ6) and many guys had their ignition switches seize on them. I found that you can trim the lip off an old 35mm film cannister and it will work pretty good as a rain cover for the ignition. I haven't made one up for my DL yet but it looks like it will work there too. Handy if you have to park outside in the rain or even when you wash the bike.
