Raining!

All over the KLR, tonight will be the first ride in the rain. It's about time I checked out its wet weather rideability.

rain stopped, roads are drying and I'm another hour from leaving. Maybe tomorrow.

take a ride through a golf course`s sprinkler system. That way you can test offroad capabilities, rainhandling and you can pretend that the security chasing you is banjo weilding hill people. All good training.

happy news. It only stopped raining over a half mile radius of the office. The other 17 miles home were a pure soak! Bike did fine, suit did ok (need to buy some Frogg Toggs), boots were good, gloves were the wrong ones for the environment. All good.
