I had the choice when I left work yesterday, since I saw the clouds coming...

1. go straight home and miss training, but stay dry
2. go to train and risk getting caught in the rain when it was time to go home

I chose to train. As such, I was caught riding home in the rain. That SUCKED, lol. Being dedicated can be stupid sometimes, haha.

I rode tonight after the rain went away...

When I do end up riding in the rain, i get soaked and just enjoy it for what it is....

Aimin for the puddles, gettin as wet as possible havin some fun. Then get home and get all the pitty love from your girl when you pretend how awful it was...

"Thank you made it home in the rain on your bike..Now lets get you out of those soaked jeans and wet leather...Gerrrr!"

I saw a rainsuit at academy for like 20 bux top and bottoms. But it wasnt moto specific. Check out cyclegear or hit up Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He and his crew can get you taken care of.

I was down in Galveston fishing at San Luis Pass pier just chillin, my roommate calls and asked if I am in hiding from the rain..I was like what rain, hearing the thunder in the back round. Got off the phone with him, about 10 minutes later Lightning everywhere to the North and East of us. The storm went right around me and I watched it all. It was pretty cool until we packed up to go to a different pier at 2am and got caught in the storm.

The rain was nuts, it looked like starbursts (not the candy) flying into the windshield. I could barely see over the hood of the truck and almost had to pull over and chill a few times. So we decided to go home and call it a night.
