and I bet you ride everyday, no matter what...cause you're obviously a badass.

Come talk when you ride in 30 degree rain with ice forming on the inside of your face shield.

Just messin with ya guys.

After reading so much in other posts about how many track days have been cancelled due to rain and how so many people just can't stand to ride in the rain, I couldn't resist.

So, here is the question. How many of you belive the skills you learn from riding in the rain can improve your control, stability and confidence in any situation street or track?

If you answered yes-you deserve to be riding a bike. If you answered no, please contact me after you toss your down the road cause I'd love to buy the salvage.

How about phrasing a question to match the type answer your looking for.
