I'm a daily rider, don't even have a car, the weather usually isn't a big deal to me.

Saturday I tilled the garden then it rained so hard Sunday that the soil liquefied. The tiller literally capsized and sank in the garden, what a f-ing mess. I could stand some dry weather.

It was such a nasty mess, raining hard, spilled gas and oil, my shoes came off, my water and mud soaked sweat pants trying to fall down................

Last thing on my mind was pictures.

Oh well, I picked a couple pounds of asparagus today.

weather is

We still live in the best place on earth guys. Your desire to ride is all that keeps you from doing it.

Laugh

We are out there riding; I personally prefer not to ride during the big rain/wind storms when it's avoidable . . . . .

ride on the 21st

There is a ride leaving Wenatchee on the 21st called the run to border. Should be about 300 bikes, all makes and models......Weather is supposed to be good....... Been doing it for about 8 years now and always impressive........ Run from Wenatchee to Oroville..... Then everyone splits up and some of us take the loop over Taroda pass to Curlew then over Kellers ferry then back to Wenatchee always a good time........Come Rain or Shine.......
