Hi All

I live in the Portland, Oregon. I have on occasion seen a few motorized

bikes here. What I really would like to know is if the gas powered engine

ones(non frame mounted--Honda, Robin,and Titan) can still function

in the rain.? We sometimes get rain that actually falls hard. Sometimes

comming down at angles(wind aided).

I don't intend to ride it real fast in the rain.

Thanks

Clarence

There is some stuff called "Stuph" available at your local hobby shop- look in the R/C boat section. Makes electronics waterproof.

Engines themselves usually have no problems, but the plug wire/magneto/cdi/ect. could use a dose.
