I'm just curious. I've gotten caught in the rain a few times. And when I get home and pull it in the garage steam starts coming out of the front like crazy! Is this normal?
Sounds like the day I picked mine up. 3hr round trip and I was soaked to the skin within 10mins and very cold. Ive been colder though - a 2.5hr trip on New Years Eve night in ambient temperatures of -6C to see my mum. It'd normally take me about 1.5hrs but the roads were so icy I had to take it steady. Now that was cold!Last weekend was crazy!! ........ I was an hour out and had another 2 hours to go. After I turned around it I hit dry road again. I got back to me peeps house and jumped in a hot shower. I don't think I've ever been that wet and cold!!
Leather's won't keep you dry unless they're specially treated. And even then it'll probably soak in through the seams.riding in the rain was fun....only if i had the right clothing...if only i can have a full leather suit...man. just ride in the rain without even worrying about being cold but focus on your riding.
My bike does the same. After a long ride the bike holds a lot of water inside the fairings and arounds the padding etc. When I pulled it into the garage.... yowser!!! Really cools steam engine... I wish I would have taken a pic or two. Cause Damn!!! But I have to admit.... wouldnt anybody think that is normal? Water on exhaust = steam.
