He's not "my guy." He's the Midwest Regional Field Service Engineer. He is one of five Employed by BMW to cover the USA. Travels a lot. Sees these bikes day in and day out. Know the F800GS inside and out. The water accumulation is not from the snorkel intakes. (You will believe what you will of course.) I've been up to to 70-80mph in torrential rain at least a few times. No problems.
