First, rain at the top of the world highway, just getting started in Tok:



Now hail. Taking shelter under my own saddlebags:



Truck pulls over to offer me shelter. I tap on my helmet to indicate "i'm protected." They laugh, wave, and drive on. They must have interpreted it as "i'm a knucklehead!"



It lets up a bit.



The ice starts steaming up on the road. Bizarre.



The rain washes it into piles of ice.



I ride on, a beautiful drive. And then I have to pull over 50 miles later for more hail, thunder and lightning!



These things are like bb's at 60mph.

Rain Riding

Most of my friends hate riding in the rain, i think they dont know what the are missing. Summer showers, mist, torrential downpours, water running down your collar, pouring water out of your boots, the ever classic wet crotch. Ok, so sometimes it's not so much fun. But we all do it because we would rather be on a motorcycle experiencing the elements than being stuck in a cage. There are moments that deffinately make me laugh when rain riding....the classic look of a car full of people looking at me thinking that i'm crazy, lol. Little do they know i could be having the time of my life! Rain riding will definately sharpen your riding skills and make you an all around better rider. When wearing the propper gear it can be a most enjoyable experience. Dont shy away from inclement weather, embace it and have a little fun.

Heading out for a 3 day ride last month.



The rain had pushed some of the creek crossings up a bit.
