By default the indicators switch off after approximately 300m. The only issue is when riding in places like certain parts of France where it's customary/common practice to keep indicating while passing (even on the motorway) - not a problem for 1 or 2 cars, but if you're passing for much longer you need to reactivate them a number of times.

Why not ride it in the wet? Isn't that like the Mediterranean/East Asian tradition of keeping the packing plastic on a new sofa until it perishes? ...postponing the inevitable? 400 miles from Leeuwarden NL to London, and then 330 from Lands End to London last year, both trips in absolute downpours - these bikes are fantastic in bad weather. If you're worried about bits corroding, get yourself some ACF-50.
