I will be transporting my Rush city Speed on a 1,000-mile trip. I live in Ohio and the trip will head south to Florida. I will likely encounter rain and snow. I am traveling with a friend concerned with the bike’s weight. A suggestion is to remove the battery during transport. I am worried that the exposed battery cavity would put the electric components in danger due to moister, road salt, or chemicals. What experience have you had in transporting a bike in these conditions? I would prefer to keep the battery in. I have been trying to come up with a solution to make the cavity somewhat waterproof. Thanks in advance for your response.
