I have been riding motorcycles for 16 yrs. Goldwings for 15 yrs. Two nights ago I rode in the worse rainstorm ever on my way home from work at 10:30pm. I had my bright yellow Frogg Toggs on which kept me dry and the full face helmet did a good job too, but within a quarter mile of leaving in the moderate rainstorm(first time on this bike), while in 3rd gear and just getting ready to shift into 4th, (rpms up) I hit 18 inches deep (couldn't see but felt it)of water. At that same time a car to my left also hits it and showers me with the spray. Bike bogged way down but I kept rpms up because I didn't want to tip over. After about 30 ft I came out of it only to hit it again 20-40 feet later same scenario. Front end was like a snowplow pushing the water away as I rode through. Last night I paid more attention as to where the drains were and yep thats where the non flooded area was. Bike is running okay now but it messed up my sensors for my after market gages(oil pressure and temp). Voltmeter spiked and held at 18 volts for a good 6 miles before coming back down to normal range. I'm not sure alternator would go that high so I'll take it as faulty gage even though that wiring is high and dry. I was glad to have a fuel injected engine versus a carb as I'm not sure bike would have kept running.
