I was not that lucky. Leave the house and when I got to the area of HWY-6 and Clay Rd got caught in the storm :( no time to put the rain covers in my saddle bags and tank bag. In the pillion seat I always have my backpack strapped with work laptop and office attire. Everything got soak!! At least my dressing slack were not that wet as the jeans. Socks are all wet and I can still feel the water inside my shoes. Laptop is OK because I carry it in one of those neoprene sleeves.

I just had some spray from SUVs deciding I was going too slow. I really need to clean my gear, though.

Wife called this morning and told me it rained cats and dogs at my house not 10mins after I rode off. Those rain clouds were on my @$$ the whole way.

I'm gonna bring a set of shirt/pants tomorrow to leave at my work... just in case.

Anybody get any rain today?

I rode in expecting rain, but with no other choice. Was pleasantly surprised not a drop was dropped today.

On a side note, while splitting lanes today, I passed a LEO (slowly) and he didn't do anything.

Then again it was a two lane highway with no full shoulders and the traffic was backed up prettttty far.

Morning, afternoon, no rain. Got about 3 drops on lunch ride.

Forecast seems to change hourly. I didn't ride yesterday cus the forecast the night before said 50% rain. I got to work yesterday morning, forecast was down to 20% and it turned out to be a beautiful day.

I figure as long as I keep a change of clothes at work, I'll ride in if it ain't pouring rain when I leave the house in the morning. I'd like to get in as much riding as I can before my riding season comes to a close. I don't like to ride without gear, and 95F and 95% humidity make wearing gear very uncomfortable, if not impossible.

I got a little rain this morning at 9am leaving home, but it cleared up as I went North. Afternoon looked threatening, but not even a drop!

Yah, I lost like 25 pounds last year from riding full gear in the hot weather.
