I live in the Sandhills area of North Carolina and in the summer there is alway a chance of a late day thunderstorm. I stopped riding my bike to work on those type of days cause I was worried about the eletronics. I have an F6B model which has a lot less then your goldwings and was curious what you all do. I do carry a cover that I could use while parked and the ride home is only about 10 miles. Thanks for any advice!
