Post Areas Prone To Rust?

Hi all just wondering if from any of your experiences are there any areas of the F4 i should be extra careful with in regards to rust. I ask this as i use my F4 as an everyday commuter as i don't have a drivers license and now that its my first winter with this bke i cant help but be out in the wet from time to time...Any comments would be well appreciated...Thanks all and stay upright!

Surely a good proper cleaning of your bike at regular intervals will keep it in good condition. Plenty of water after exposure to road salt is a must on most bikes. A proper drying after wasing and WD40 in exposed areas should help prevent rust

When my Dad and I first laid our eyes on an MV Agusta at the UK launch, we were simply blown away.................
