No, not what you think. I left Massachusetts on Thursday the day after the big snow storm and headed south with my bike on the back of the car. Now with two days of road salt, dirt, and just general grit and grime, I am cleaning the heavy stuff off with the only thing I have, windex and paper towels. And man is it a mess.
Has anyone been successful travelling with a bike on a vehicle in inclement weather ? And don't say put it in the vehicle. I saw a couple of travelers with their entire bike covered in plastic. This seems impracticle because: the plastic eventually will tear, and I insist on bringing the bike in when I finally get to the motel en route.
