I have ridden in the rain many times, don't mind it to much. But I am sure everyone has been in the same situation. Took off work for 3 days, everything is packed up and ready to go for a 1500 mile round trip to take a look at the weather to find out 50-60% chance of rain all three days. I know all the obvious of riding gear, safety etc. I suppose I am just looking for some encouragement of how not to let something you cannot control ruin a trip. Thanks for the kind words..
