Side wind deflectors
« on: April 24, 2012, 07:39:32 PM »
On Saturday I got a bit wet, and noticed that, although the upper leg stays dry, everything from eight inches below the knee gets soaked. It looks like I'll have to buy a rain suit. Rain!  :232:

I didn't need one on the ST - but then again, I didn't have as much fun either!

even with your deflectors ?  Today i have ordered the deflectors to better protect my knees and legs.
Hummm anyway when it rains i always wear a rain suit, you should also.

I wind deflectors only protect down to about 20cm below the knee. They take away a lot of wind from your leg, and your upper leg and knee stay dry when it rains. Without a rain suit, your lower leg and boots get a right soaking!

The weather protection is a lot worse that my ST1300, that's for sure.
