Yeah, my brooks has been wet a number of times without issue. I do carry a plastic grocery bag which I shove under the seat where it can't be seen. Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don't.

I think it is all about the chase itself with almost all dogs. I was pulled off a bike by a german shepard when I was about 8. When I hit the ground he just licked my face.
