Never been out in the rain and I hope I never do. Don't get me wrong, I love the rain. My first outing with the car was one spring night. Dew on the windshield made it cold so it would clear no matter what. Plus I've ween the duct tape trick. No thanks. Take out a bottle and a folding chair and ride it out.
Two years ago, I entered my Spyder in one of the local big VW shows. The show was scheduled to run from 5:00-9:00, but about 7:00 the sky started getting greyer and uglier. And I'd left my tonneau home.
Luckily, I'd arrived early and picked a spot right on the edge of the show close to an easy access.
Just as the first drops started to fall, I bee-lined out of there but only made it a short ways until the sky opened up. There's an ancient burger stand on my way home, so I pulled under their canopy to wait it out, just a little wet.
After about 40 minutes, I gave up. The rain had tapered off a bit, but it didn't look like it was stopping anytime soon. I made the rest of the dash home with little drama. On the whole, I was a lot drier than getting caught on the MC.
