The songline "It never rains in California" was playing in my head as I was putting on raingear while the scene turned from dry to this:

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.
Yep, as in the norwegian saying "it ain't bad weather but poor choice of clothing".
When riding in precipitation I feel as the whole universe has shrunk to a bubble with me in its center. Tiny me, one versus all. The life, true world. Sure, that feels good. Likely unsafe, that too.

On the way to Mid-Ohio...

Less than ideal conditions on our way to Mid-Ohio Vintage Days 2012, with downpours that had even the cagers stopping on the side of the road...

Talking What Rain?

Just can't let the rain stop the ride.
I posted this somewhere before but thought this was a good place too.

Bring your clear shield on long trips. A few hundred miles in the rain at night with safety glasses and the shield open isn't fun.

The T120 parts having been got, a ’52 TR5 admired and coffee consumed, we found a puddle to play in on our way home.

A typical winter storm on Vancouver Island, B.C.

Dallas Rd, Victoria, B.C. 100kph + winds are fairly common here in winter. Driftwood will end up in the cemetery across the road!
