New Competition Green first ride

Collected my new Competition Green Bobber with the Olive Green panniers fitted.
One and a half hours ride home, half way it started to rain, heavily. Could not believe the amount of water that was being sprayed up my back and then pooling in the seat.
Will have to find a solution to this as living in England this is a common happening.
Anyone got ant ideas.

You Britts are cool dedicated riders to deal with all that rain. I suggest you move to the US.

Competition Green and Frozen Silver is the "Fastest" Bobber, good choice Mate.

You could imagine drilling some draining holes in that seat, as it is cupped to gently hold your arse and so water will pool in it.

Or only ride on sunny days.

Thinking about it in a bit more depth I assume it has the std rear mudguard ?? Plus number plate under it ??
If so I can?t see how it can then get into your seat apart from running off your jacket So think you might be better off getting one of these :-)
