Hi, I listened to our local weather man, Dead Wrong Dale, and headed for a short ride, 6 miles. No rain coat, no nothing. I was wearing bib overalls gloves t shoes. A mile into back home, boom. Instant flood. No shelter no nothing. The little Dax did not miss a beat! These little motors rule! I almost drown. Tape your CDI wires and procede! Sure miss that wind shield tho.
