Crappy weather

it's rained every single time I've taken the bike out for about two months now.   Saturday is supposed to be a blessed gap, finally the leathers can get dried out.  


Here's hoping tomorrow will be a great, if possibly final,  truly decent day for riding this season.

Rain

As long as it's not really pissing it down continuously,  that sounds fine to me.   Better get the leathers waxed up too.  


Sorry about the back tyre - I've always found that 15 minutes with a soldering iron works wonders for putting the tread back on, though.  Get someone to rotate it slowly, and trace through the original grooves until it looks like you've got at least a few mm all round.

Watch you don't linger too long in one point though - a mate lost concentration while lighting a fag once, the tyre didn't half give him a surprise when it blew!   We laughed for ages after, he's still not lived it down.

Stupid weather

Was grey and overcast here, when I popped out this morning.  Got back, quick shower and change, and out on the bikes.

Kitted out in jeans, kevlar jacket and summer gloves.  Thought I'd be warm enough.  Hadn't looked at the thermometer.  Bl**dy sun had broken through and I was roasting.  So sweaty, I couldn't get my jacket off, when we got to where we were going!  :wink::sunglasses:
