    Weather protection

    I like the weather protection afforded by the TTSE fairing more and more.  Just a mesh jacket with waterproof liner, no rain suit - 22 miles in rainy Florida weather and just as dry at the end as at the beginning.  Granted it was primarily semi-rural so traffic at 0530 wasn't much of an issue and I hit the six traffic lights just right, still, not even damp pants cuffs. :001:

    Though I don't like riding in the rain , I wish I would have had my Trophy rather than my Tiger five full days of rain out of nine the Tiger was not at it best but better then my old KLR.

    yep I did 470mils from Spa in Belgium back to the UK in the rain this year. :151: The only time I got wet was at the chunnel terminal waiting for boarding  :138: While on the move the rain just goes over and past  :047:

    The UK is certainly a good place to test the weather protection this time of year !

    SO, what am I doing wrong.   I get soaked to the skin everytime it rains.  I've tried the screen at various heights but it makes little difference.   It's raining in Essex at the moment so i'll pop out to give it another try.

    I agree that the weather protection is superb on the Trophy. I did a run through the AZ desert into CA last year with another rider on a BMW K1600GTL. We hit intermittent rain storms, and he pulled over after the first one to put on rain gear. I was like, "you got wet"?  :017:

    I have been out in quiet a few down pours and must admit the protection is great. I tend to lower the screen a bit in heavy rain as it then clears the visor but tend to just play with the best position. I got caught on the A1 once and there was standing water all over. The bike gives good feed back and didn't make me feel nervous at all.

    This is the bike for all occasions and all weather  :152:
