I have to say I didnt notice anything, and the rest of the guys didn't mention it, so I can only assume it wasn't an issue ;)

The weather took a turn for the worse, so on with the wet gear. The took the opportunity for a few photos riding this single track road at the bottom of a mountain gorge.

There is only so much rain you can take before the need for coffee takes over.
We stopped somewhere on a main road towards France that had shelter for the bikes.

I thought the lambda sensor/fuel injection took care of all that ..... not like the old days of carbs.
