I've had my Burgman 400 out in a downpour at 70 MPH and didn't have a drop in the trunk. I've been out in the rain quite a bit and never had any rain in the trunk. That said, it still never hurts to take a little extra precaution 'just in case'. :wink:
Again, only speaking for the 400, my trunk has stayed totally dry in absolute downpours and also when pressure jet washing. I haven't had leaks in the glove compartments either, it all seems fairly well sealed.
I have done several trips in the rain and found the underseat storage stays fairly dry. Our clothes were kept in saddlebags in liners. I usually keep Helmets, and extra clothes in the underseat area, but again they have always been dry.
I just got caught in a heavy downpour (again) a few days ago. I've never had any water get into any of the storage (underseat or glove box). As long as I was moving the fairing did a good job of keeping the rain off me - but once the traffic stopped I quickly got drenched. This is on a 650...
