Well, I had intended to run down and grab the tag Delaware tag-O-Rama between school and work. What I got to do was some product testing. I got caught in the monsoon level rains while headed home from school and can report the following;

HJC modular helmet - works well, keeps the rain out and does not fog up as long as you are moving.

Pirelli Angel ST tires - work great in the rain!!!!

Joe Rocket mesh jacket - excels ate letting the rain through!
-- same with my boots, pants and Speedwerks shirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bestem Top case - not a drop inside of it.


And after all that I have the pleaseure of working in rain this evening! Maybe I will grab the tag tomorrow.

Rain ain't the problem; it's those high voltage bolts of electricity that came along with this storm...

^ A memorable day. I think 02 and JJ were the only ones that got soaked.

The rest of us waited 15 minutes and the rain stopped.

There was one more dumb, impatient, wet guy.

sorry... couldn't help myself..
I am going to try to get outta the house around 9. Up to the SF and ride from bottom to top with some side roads. 70+ miles of gravel. Then eat somewhere and head home.
I may even camp one night either sunday or monday... but that may take an act of god.
I also have to get over a tweaked knee before I go.... Sux to be me sometimes....
clear as mud?

DDBs ? what say you?

Let's just pretend that I'm leaving Sunday to camp at Michaux. What town would i put in the GPS to head towards to find a lil camp spot? Nothing fancy, electric, water, cabin with satelite tv, just the basics. Or maybe just a lil dirt clearing with no snoring ant eaters nearby? Not that I could hear that ant eater all the way across the Laurel Fork Campground or anything

OK. I think I am done with outdoor activities (except work that is) until at least Sunday and maybe even until Tuesday. Even with mesh, it was just stupid hot out there this morning. It made me miss yesterdays ride in the rain!
