I have a feeling the answer is yes but I am still gonna ask this: Are motorcycles designed to be ridden in rain?
If so, would riding in rain accelerate the wear/tear of certain parts? If so what are they?
Would riding in rain require more frequent service of certain parts? If so what are they?
Finally if motorcycles are designed to be ridden in rain, can it be stored outdoors and be exposed to rain, dew, and elements? Not that I would do it to my bike. My common sense tells me that the answer is "no" and I am wondering why.
