I tried that with a Jeep years ago after being out 4 wheelin. Without the top and doors they wouldnt let me in. That would be funny as hell on a bike, an old one anyway. As far as seriously going to a car wash. In the time it takes to go there and all hell just wash it at home.

Rubber side stays down........

How many PSI are those hoses on the drive through ones? If its the brushless, non-wax spraying ones I would drive though it in a heartbeat. It would be fun as well. Just not on my bike, I dont want to think what all that water and soap could do to my engine if it got in the exhaust with the engine running... Also need to waterproof the battery box. It might hurt a bit to complete a circuit with it Anyone wanna donate there bike to the halarity fund?

The bike will be just fine. Its no worse than a serious rain, and its more then ready to handle that.

would you guys use a carwash?

Just make sure it is brushless... and keep both feet planted firmly for the duration of the wash.

I'd also advise against wearing leathers that day, they might shrink.
