So, upgraded from my VTR250 to a Street Triple this week (yay!) and of course Melbourne turns on the bloody waterworks (boo!). I don't have a garage and ride to work every day regardless of the weather and I also have to leave the bike outdoors during the day while at work. The chrome on the VTR (and even small sections of the forks) has rusted, which I can only assume is due to being exposed to the elements. What can I do to prevent this happening on my beautifully clean new bike? I will be getting a cover for overnight at home - but what should I be doing to prevent water causing problems?
