Buy a new motorcycle and it has rained every day since.
I have one I just changed the oil and spark plugs wanting to be ridden. Tomorrow is only a 20% chance. Probably while I'm out like a couple weeks ago.
I'll bet that rocket could get pretty hairy on a wet road without gentle inputs from the right wrist. I always pack a rain suit, but I don't ride in the rain more than I have to.
Plus I'm not positive the tires are fully scuffed either...
Never a bad to ride, just bad gear.
Pilot Road 4GT, the best rain tires for a touring bike.
I have a roadster
I usually won't let rain discourage me, but I'll admit we did postpone a run up the BRP for hurricane Flo. Parkway was closed anyway. Even the places where we had reservations were happy to reschedule without penalty.
I'm a fair weather rider and not afraid to admit it
I will come home in the rain. Usually won't leave in the rain.
^^^^ This is me.
I thought I was going to get wet today, but not a drop. It was a good day to ride. Much cooler. I have a big wind screen and I can hunker down behind it and stay pretty dry as long as I'm moving, but visibility is bad. I used to use rain x and it did good at shedding the water, but would cloud the plastic over time to the point it needed replacing.
I don't mind riding in the rain I just don't like getting to my destination soaking wet. I would rather the rain stop so that I get blow dried before I stop.
With big fat tires my traction is less than optimal on wet roads. I keep my bikes stripped so I dont have places to stash rain gear. And finally I hate how filthy it makes the bike. So I avoid riding in the rain
Back when I rode motors, I found that I had zero say on the former.
Well rode the bike to work this morning. No rain and the ride was nice until I got near work. I have experienced alot dtiving in Atlanta but this is the first time I've had to deal with cows in the road.
Rode up to waynesville NC Friday, saw a play with the wife sat night and rode home yesterday. Took mostly backroads, had a great time, and didn't see 4 raindrops. Nice and cool too. Much better than the heat we've been having.
Saturday was beautiful. Rode 250 miles, mostly backroads into Ranburne Alabama up to Piedmont, over to Cedartown to Cave Springs, Coosa, Rome, back down to Carrollton, then home.
Only downside was the slow traffic in Ranburne. Apparently it was yard sale day along Hwy 46 through the entire city.
You can bungee one of these on. It's a jacket and pants. I think I paid less than 20.00 for it at wal mart. It's not stylish and it will be the most wrinkled thing you ever wore, but it will keep you dry. That's a 11 size shoe for comparison. A bungee cord will compress it down even more. If you ride enough, you'll get caught in the rain. Wont leave home without that and a tire plug kit and a way to inflate.
Boss sent me this. Pretty good
