The KTM is great. I haven't been riding much though with all the rain and everything else going on. Do you normally ride regardless of weather? I'm not afraid of the rain or anything but just find that I don't save any time getting to work if I have to spend extra time gearing up. :BangHead:

Why is gearing up never shown in the movies those guys just jump on and roll out. I spend several minutes putting on my jacket, boots gloves and helment and when I ride 2 up my girl is always about how long it takes WTF!!! ....

no much bro


but back on topic, No, if i know its gonna rain, i.e. looks like, or more then 30% i prob. wont ride.

But the rain jimmy, rob, and I hit yesterday sucked...we stopped under a overpass. Makes me not want to ride in the rain again, it can go from light to hardcore, in seconds.

Only thing I hate about rainy days is the instant chain cleaning I have to do when I get home. I'm super paranoid about grit in the new chain. Especially after the R6 played submarine last week.
