gunna go get my bike from the shop (having the scratches painted) and it might rain tomorrow. i was gunna use the trailer to get her home but was wondering about it being in the rain when its not on - water getting where its not supposed to be! anything i should do to prepare the bike so i dont have to replace anything due to water damage....

jw - it might be nice (scattered showers) but limited time so i was curious as of what to do - might just ride her home!

:popcorn:

There is a drain so the water cant get into the intake directly it will be fine i can promise you that. What about all those people who ride year round rain/snow? bikes were meant for it.
