Really bad in the winter months
The day I picked up my bike, I did a long ride up along the Tennessee line. We had several good snows in that region in the days before the ride and I splashed through salt several times during the ride. I noticed the next day that there was rust in several places on the bike from the salt. I now make a point to thoroughly rinse the bike off after every salty ride.
You can see the rust near the oil drain plug in the photo below:
After seeing your post, I think that I'll double check the area around the head bearing area. I plan on keeping this bike for a long time and would hate to have to give it up because of my failure to keep an eye on the rust.

Don't you think that it's a ^%#$&# shame that Hunter S. Thompson wasn't an adventure rider? Imagine the ride reports...!
