    Well, after it was bad, it got better. This was on US 89 in Montana just south of Livingston:

    that column of heavy rain was directly where I wanted to go, so I decided I'd zig, the storm zagged and caught me anyway... it was pretty wicked but thankfully pretty isolated so it moved on pretty quick.

    from July 2017...
    Day Started out HOT and sunny leaving Phoenix. Not a cloud in the sky.. up and over 4 Peaks P1010221.JPG
    Took A-Cross road the 25 miles or so across the North side of Roosevelt and headed up toward Young.. P1010224.JPG
    Stopped in Young for a splash of gas and decided we'd head on up to Forest lakes for a bite to eat... leaving Young the sky to the North was looking like it was getting ugly. Within minutes ugly sky turned to WICKED. When the first rain drop hit my face shield I let those guys know I was gonna stop and put my rain coat on. By the time I pulled over and got off the bike, the rain came in a wall. As I was unzipping the tail bag and getting my rain coat out the water was pooling up on the inside of my face shield. We rode in and out of heavy rain for the balance of the afternoon.

    Behind us you can see the columns of rain dropping from this overlook on the Rim Road P1010239.JPG
    The gnarliest cell we rode through was dropping hail... a lot of hail P1010252.JPG
    The forest floor was steamy as the hail melted off. P1010254.JPG
    Epic day!

    North of Edmonton Alberta on my way to Prudhoe Bay. I stopped for gas. There was a tornado behind me and another ahead of me. People told me to stay at the gas station. I decided to keep moving. The tornado was just as likely to hit the gas station as me on the road. ADVENTURE RIDER!
