I rode in a PGR ride yesterday and we hit one helluva storm. Rain was so hard I couldnt see 20 feet in front of me. We were about 1/2 mile from my house when we ran into water over the road. I was doing about 20 mph when I hit it. It had to be at least 10 or 12 inches deep. Water was shooting up hight than my windshield and coming back on me like a firehose. PURE LUCK AND THE GRACE OF GOD that I didnt lose it. Anyway I bailed on the prosession as most of the others did and limped home. Bike never choked off but was running rough. I Drained the line on the air filter and it looked a little oily. Gonna take the K&N filter out and clean and recharge it. What else if anything should I do? Thanks

Hey Joe you prolly had to take your boots off and pour the water out of them. One of the reasons I stopped hose washing so much and I only ride in the rain if I get caught in it. After a one month road trip to include the eastern US I can see why the Right Coast guys are used to riding in the rain. I'd think after 2 days of drying time it runs like to used to.

That's funny. After five days of fog and wet roads last summer I drew the same conclusion. I still remember taking this picture because it was the clearest it got all week... the roads even got dry...



As for the bike being dried out... dry the air filter and see if she'll run herself clean.
