Probably not. That's because (I can't believe I'm having to explain this ) motorcycles are designed to be able to handle rain. Just like cars are. Ever hear a motorcycle manufacturer say "just one thing: don't ride this bike in the rain". Nope.

If you don't ever ride in the rain, that's one thing. Kind of wussy, but one thing nonetheless.

Bolt on a non-waterproof GPS and get into the rain out on a ride or on a trip. See how long your non-waterproof GPS lasts.


Me? I keep riding no matter what. Rain or shine. And I don't want to have to remove and stow my GPS just because of some rain. I'd like to continue to use it, even in the rain. So for me waterproof GPS +1 non-waterproof GPS 0.
