Sounds kinda fun to me actually. Well, the bolt backing out part kinda sucks.

Riding in the rain gets better the longer you've been riding. It'll get better. Sorry to hear about your bike, though.

Reminds me of the time the linkage broke. There was no rain and it was only a few miles to the shop though. That sucks.

Sorry to hear. B is right, rain becomes almost a challenge after some time in it. Rain or shine baby!!!!!


I am a glutton for punishment.

Saturday I started on the Northside, did my own ride to Yankees in Carlos, met up w some guys on a different ride and rode to TWS (Texas World Speedway) for parade laps. Rode back down 3090/forest and went to Brandi's Redneck party off 59/242. Before leaving there decided I would jump in the pool w full leather/gear and then ride to Montgomery to have dinner w family flying in from California. Hit rain in Conroe, found JustNick, Scotty77 and wife plus at Wolfies, rode to Grandparents on the lake then proceded to ride back to 59/242.

That was Saturday, I checked my lower leathers this morning and the liner is still wet.


Ask and see if Tree knows if they have the hardware before tracking down there.
