Risk of damage aside, it doesn't stick to the plastic so it doesn't work. The stuff they make specifically for plastic works well, but it only lasts a couple days.

I've been using Rain-X on visors forever. In light rain it works perfectly. In wrath of god type shit like yesterday, not much is going to help, but luckily the rain will wash the rain off your visor.

Protip: you can also apply Scotchguard directly to your nuts.

Hell yeah

I had a rare commute via 4 wheels yesterday due to a variety of reasons and got to experience the gridlock that auto drivers do on a regular basis. "F that", I told myself, "I don't care if it's a typhoon, I'm not doing that again anytime soon."

So this morning, hours before dawn, I rode over the Bay Bridge in a driving rain and the absolute windiest conditions I've experienced in years. It was... invigorating and completely awesome! Light and smooth input through the bars and a steady throttle led to actual laughter in my helmet rather than dread and terror. The few other vehicles on the road at that hour probably thought I was nuts.

It was a pleasant reminder that motorcycling is fun and Mother Nature kicks ass.

Weird. I've never had any luck with it. Dish soap always worked better, and then I switched to the rainx plastic stuff.

Of course I rode in today and every day. Google said Menlo Park -> 237 & Great America was going to take 1 hour 50 minutes this morning. Did it in 40 on my Tenere w/ panniers, etc. Nice and dry. Aerostich ftw.
