Rain Rain... Go AWAY!

This weather blows! Every morning I wake up and look outside. It's like friggin' Groundhog Day. Same thing EVERY DAY! When is it going to be nice and we can finally bitch about how it's too damn hot out!?!?!

I hate this!

Jeff, don't worry man, the rain won't last forever. I see the end in site. Tonight throughout the weekend should be nice. Come on out for the ride tomorrow morning.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

You won't melt, you bunch of sallies I rode this morning. When I got to the shop, I took a big fluffy purple towel and dried the bike off, it's amazing how dirty the bike gets in a 30 minute ride in the rain. Anyone want to do the twisties this afternoon?

i was gonna.. but my problem is that, 1) don't own rain gear, 2) i work in a office so i have to dress nice, 3) the bike would have to sit outside for 8 hours in the rain before i ride it home

Don't let the rain stop you. I saw a Busa on 355 this morning and it was coming down in buckets. I don't know why or how he was even out riding but hey if he can do it so can you..

Hey Cailin,

Wanna leave me the keys to your 748? I'll leave the tank nice and topped up when I'm done.

Theres this old guy down here with an Ooooollllldddd triumph bonneville with a sidecar , thats rides every day of the year. I pass him every morning going the other way on 59. Doesnt matter what the weather, even snowstorms, he's riding to work. Wears this old leather helmet and goggles too. I'm gonna have to snap a pic of this guy one morning, it hilarious. I gotta give him credit though he is the original die hard.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
