Did Sat look that bad?

Thought I saw 30% chance of rain....?
Sunday on looks pretty poor. Lord knows we need the rain, though.

Actually, the weather forecast has been improving. Two days ago they were saying rain all day, yesterday they said 50% chance of a shower, now they're saying 30% chance of a shower. By tomorrow they may be saying partly cloudy. This is basically the same kind of forecast we had last year and it turned out to be a great day - we got sprinkled on for about ten minutes at one point.

60° and 30% chance of a shower sounds like a perfect day for this kind of ride to me. The trails are so dry this year that even if it rains we'll probably still be drier than last year. And . . . it's supposed to be an adventure anyway.

I think my DR-Z likes rain better anyway. It's water cooled, right? Says so in the owners book.
Gots 2 radiators and everything!

Mud is way better than dust.
Bring on a little shower here and there.
