About freaking time....I hate dragging the hose out, watering the freaking lawn, riding in hot, sunny weather, never being able to use that rain gear Dano sold me months ago.

PS.... The rain gauge, wireless electronic doda weather station I got for X-mas, reads I got a 1/4" of rain Tony, want to water my lawn? bring sunscreen, I don't want you to burn, I'm out, used it all, about a 1/2 gallon this summer.

Well, weather or not, I have been riding.....Rain, hail, nor cagers will stop me from riding But I tell you the hail freaking hurts at 50, and bike no likey the heavy rains, runs realllly bad in the rain. Had on pucker moment, fog, rain, Saturday night, then realized Rt 59 northbound lane is under a couple inches of freaking water, thank the lord southbound lane was clear.
