- "Fiona" my '14 R3T & "Delilah" my '16 V-Rod Muscle
I'm a bit dismayed at the corrosion I'm seeing emerge on bolt heads, exhaust clamps and other parts of my '16 HD V-Rod Muscle. I've owned her since new and, when not being ridden, she's spent most of her life covered in a garage (Las Vegas, NV; Shreveport, LA and now Miami, FL). I never use a water hose on my bikes; only wipe them down. Though I do ride her in the rain; it's been seldom and nothing like my '14 R3T with whom I regularly ride in the rain... sleet...and even the occasional snow... and she's virtually corrosion free (nothing I've really noticed at least). There's not much I can really do, so my real question is, what protectorant would be recommended to help inhibit the process?
