Although I prefer not riding in the rain, it is better than not riding at all! So, I went for a ride today on my Norge, and it was great--but very wet.
Surprisingly, two weeks of farm dust (dirt for you city folk) washed right off! No need to get out the hose, turn the water back on, and hope the well pump gives me enough pressure.
I am not really a slacker (I worked about 60 hours this past week), but I'll gladly take a win by default.
Any other tips short of using a hose?
