Having polished and daubed ACF50 in all the right places on my brand new Z, I had to ride out today in drizzle and light rain. The UK is like that! Needless to say I did not provoke the D214's.
However, I was stunned by just how much muck and road grime splattered all over the rear of the bike, the rear seat, my back and helmet too. The front end remained fairly clean but the rear was truly filthy.
My previous bike had a tail tidy with a short extender, plus a larger rear hugger and my back stayed dry. The Z with its long factory rear thingy looks like it should offer decent protection, but it doesn't.
Has anyone else managed to improve this situation? Dry weather riders need not respond.
