I don't mind getting caught in the rain as it's kinda fun to play around without killing expensive tires. I'm sure not gonna go out of my way to ride when I have a perfectly good car and truck to drive either though.

I HATE cleaning the bike after it rains.

Do you pass by the Goodyear plant at around 4:30 pm by any chance?
I see some one on a bike pass by on 225 almost every day at that time.

+1. Everyday Rain or Shine. I didn't even get wet all week except for the ride home Wed. I got soaked. I was expecting to get drenched yesterday but nothing.
