Thatís a tough call. Iíve never had a problem with switches so I donít think drying is doing any harm. I doubt the dryer is pushing any water anyplace the hose didnít. I know at the shop we have more issues with switches on Hondaís than other bikes but usually fixed with a squirt of 6in1 lube and working the switch back and forth a few times. In fairness to Honda these are usually older bikes that are not necessarily the cream of the crop.

Bike dryers? Doesn't the paint get chipped with the bike whumping around inside it while it's spinning?

You put a towel in with it.

Do you use a towel after a shower, too? Nobody has time for that!

I'm very fortunate to have a loving partner who helps when I'm really in a hurry, too. Quick and thorough, totally dry.

I run around the back yard naked, prancing and hopping until dry. Sometimes I have to squat like a sumo wrestler to get extra dry in the nether regions.

Lol.... Even in the winter? Do you have a winter where you are? 😁

I actually have a sort-of funny/related story about blowers.
I was riding to TN one night after work (about halfway through a 9.5hr ride) and hit a downpour out of nowhere. I got soaked, so I stopped at a gas station to change clothes. Place is empty except for the woman working. I get done changing in the bathroom, and realize I hadn't really dried myself off so I decided to use one of those hand blow dryers down my shirt and pants.
So I'm standing there holding the front of my pants open, blower full blast, when the lady working at the gas station peeks in the door. We make very awkward eye contact and she slinks away.
I felt like I should explain myself, and she just busts out laughing. She claimed I was in there so long she figured she should check on me.
I don't know why I was so embarrassed, but I was. Haha...
She was cool, though, gave me some coffee, we laughed some more, and I hit the road.
