Yeah no shit.

That wiki pretty much backs exactly what I said, there is ALWAYS water, or at least water vapor in the fuel system, this is why you get frozen gas lines in cars and bikes get frozen carbs. It comes from condensation on metal component.

...also like I said ethanol is more corrosive.

However, you assertation that the fuel system of modern motorcycles have no consideration for ethanol consumption is flat out wrong. The fuel systems are buffed up a bit to deal with the added moisture and corrosion.

There are a hundred other reasons why ethanol indeed DOES suck and they need to do away with it. We are actually on the same side here.
