Not this day though. The RT's fairing upfront keeps almost all of the rain off of my legs and the chaps did their job well. I find I am using the cruise control more than i thought I would and the dang XM radio won't stay off. This bike is really pretty darn good.
    YOULL have to try my MIATA you wont get wet at all a lot better choice for fun traveling and you wont have to wear CHAPS LOL

    Oh, and just for the record, ED, I think that the XCT is a supremely well-crafted, intelligently thought out, great handling and very comfortable motorcycle for extended rides and long distance touring. I'm just not yet into the Geexer Glide mode, but that day will undoubtedly come.
    Well, I'm a month from Medicare, and thought I'd give the geezer glide route a try. Living here in dark, dank, dismal western Washington where it's 45 and damp October through March it's nice to have the weather protection. Plus I take a few multi-state trips every year and it's nice to have all that lockable dry storage. If it gets hot, the XCT has fairing winglets you can turn to scoop air back onto your trunk that really work well.
    The whole thing is just so damn convenient it's seductive. No need for earplugs or dressing in layers. Jacket and helmet locked up out of sight when you stop. One drain plug oil changes every 5K miles, look at the belt if you remember, no need to lay on the ground to check tire pressures, no valve adjustments, etc., etc. Good for a man as lazy as I.
    It's not real "motorcycley" at times though.

    And one other thing for IFT. There are times on the long and boring where the XCT is working so well I think I might as well be in a convertible. Then again, my XCT has more luggage capacity than my friend's Z3 we sometimes travel in...
    A good long ride can transport me from where I am to who I am.
