The thermometer showed 42 degrees and I just had to go for a ride. No place in mind. Left with a clear blue hole in an otherwise dark sky. Two miles down the road it rained hard but the riding was fine. If I were going to ride far I would have to buy some more serious water resistant clothes. I have some bright yellow foul weather gear from my last ocean trip so I guess I could wear that stuff.

Anyways, jeans got wet but I loved it. I have resisted riding in rain more than snow. Now that I have done it once I am ready for more. Just no reason to not ride the scooter year round....

Took this photograph right after the rain passed. Started again about ten minutes later but I was already wet....

That's one great picture!

Riding in th erain isn't actually that difficult/annoying. As long as it's not purring down, it's ok.

+1 Really beautiful!

Frogg Toggs are very light weight rain gear that can be rolled up into just about nothing.
