Re: Riding in the Rain!
The LT has great protection from the rain: On my way back from CCR this summer, I got caught in a "storm of the century" between Grand Junction, CO and St. George, UT (the one that washed out the Interstate north of Las Vegas). Rain was coming down so hard, the drops were exploding the size of golf balls on my windshield. Although I had a rain suit in my top case, I decided that I'd get more wet by stopping to drag it out to put it on than I would to just continue riding. I finally pulled off at Salina, UT, after a cold wind kicked up so much, I was heeled over to go straight. My gloves were the only things that got real wet. I've since decided to leave the rain suit at home, since I didn't break it out once in that 25 state/25 day trip, and I hit quite a bit of rain. BTW - I run a Metzler on the front, and Bridgestone on the rear.
