“Top of Veltop” in heavy rain
At work, my computer froze at the end of a meeting… 17:30, no time to reboot. No time to check the radar picture. No time to wait, in order not to be too late back home. Unfortunetaly, heavy rain was on its way, and I just hit it (the red / purple spot in the upper right corner of Switzerland) !
Some rain showers being announced, I had taken this morning only the “top of the Veltop” – no side protections, just the top part that you may leave first rolled, and unroll later if rain is coming. Glad to have it : of course, I got completely wet after some time (ca. 15 minutes into that storm), but at least it took quite some time to feel a bit of water in my shoes, and my head was kept dry, without that much rain on my glasses. So of course the side protections would have helped to feel more comfortable and get less wet, but this was already much better than nothing. I do not know what I would have done on regular 2 wheels…
That’s the beauty of being on the road, on 3 wheels, even in such conditions. “To the crazy ones…”
