Swimmin in the rain with the VROD today. 190 miles from Ocean City NJ all the way back to home. Nearly 6 hours in the rain, over 4 hours in the pouring rain AND stop-n-go traffic all thru NJ and Philly. 65deg soaking wet and nearly had hypothermia. Fingernails and toe nails were all blue. Stiff neck from the cold rain shooting down my neck.

Met up with some bikers there in Hickory Run, one guy with a cherry SE VROD.

VROD held up great -- not even one issue even in the heaviest rains. Big bummer that I had to stop 3 times for fuel.

Been there done that. Even though I wasn't riding it today the bike was outside in the rain all day while I was doing work in the garage. Started right up when it was time to bring it in.

Yep the worst part is stopping for fuel and realizing that you have to pull back out into the pouring rain again.... I got so cold when it happened to me that I could hardly manage doing the clutch and brake - not good!!

I did like finding out how it handled in the rain though.
