rain

Went for a ride and got caught in the rain. This is the first time i have ridden in the rain for more years than i can remember. Fun ain't it. However, doing 50 mph ish, screen on highest setting, heated grips on, heated seat on, foot heater blowing, cruise control on i never felt the rain or got wet (unless i stopped the bike, lights etc).

IS THIS BIKING?????????:wink:

Rain

Plenty of that here today!


I remember leaving a huge puddle under a table once at a cafe in Germany (as water drained from my wet-suit - not from me).

Oh Yeah

Why is it, that bikers on motorways go slower in the rain?


(You may not want to go hell for leather on the B-roads, but there's nowt wrong with 90 on the motorway, even if it is raining) :ph43r:
