    Touch wood, I don't have any battery issues and don't have a trickle charger, and believe that regular use maintains all the essentials by having the fluids running through them.
    Even when the salt hits the roads do you not get any corrosion using acf-50 .

    Never had an issue with rust. You get the odd surface rust on the brake discs but clean and dry them and it goes.

    I do use ACF-50 but dont rely on it to keep the corrosion at bay, cleaning the bike after every ride is the key. Ive never had an issue with corrosion on any bike.

    Re: Who's still riding

    120 miles today, any opportunity I’m out and about. I think there are 2 schools of thought, either ac50 it up, panic when you see the salt dissolving your asset and path to glory, OR, flkit, it’s a machine and deserves to be used as that’s why you bought it. Shocking road conditions in the SE, but also times to have a blast. I don’t want to tempt fate, but is the gen3 virtually uncrashable?? Flipping into rain mode/ sport mode on the fly really did help and made my day (safe). My last gen3 had very little care apart from timely servicing as per the book, but they do stand up well to use in all conditions imo.
