Mine does okay, they are easy to work on, provided you're not a dipsh*t.

FIFY

Hence, why I don't own one.  But I still want one.

BBK has apparently been trying to call me for days, but the guy is out to lunch when I call.  This should be good.

By good, I mean expensive

It was a damp ride home...  The skies opened up for the second time (I think) around 4:45, and when I left at 5:00 it was raining cats and dogs.  However, the ride was fairly uneventful.  Now the gear is hanging in the garage to dry.

Very weird. I'm not too far from you, in Ottawa, and it sprinkled for about 5 minutes around 6pm. Other than that, no rain.

Today was the first time I touched the cage in a week.  I needed it to run to Walmart.  I didn't work today, but I rode anyway does that still count?

I've ridden to work every day for the last two weeks. But then, I pretty much have to, since I don't have a car anymore. I could have my wife drive me, but why would I want to do that? Smile

Yeah, it stayed north.  We caught the bottom edge of it, from the looks of the radar.  Looks like we might get another one today now too...  No worky for me today, but we'll be heading over to the demo rides at MCC sometime today.  I'll have the munchkins along, so we'll probably just look and sit on stuff.

I brought my rain gear today, since I saw the clouds coming in.  Good thing, too.  It was coming down in buckets earlier.

Edit:  The sky was blue and birds were singing by the time I headed home.

I've been dodging bullets for the last few weeks, but not today- got nailed with a downpour just as I was walking out the door from work.  First I've had my full rainsuit on in weeks!

I got spit on a little on the way in, but it was sunny and a bit warm on the way home. My Phantom dorksuit got pretty well rain-tested this weekend - a heavy soak on Friday night and a steady light rain on Saturday - and so far I've stayed try - even with some of the vents still open.  The magic of a fairing/windshield.

I rode in, thunderstorm warnings and all.  It poured all evening, stopping an hour before I left work tonight.  The humuggity has set in and caused some serious fog all the way home.  All in all, a great day to be out.

Sure it does, as long as you're ATGATT   Bigok

My plan for the year was to alternate between bicycle and motorcycle all year, however, I've been riding the motorcycle a lot more often.  Maybe I'm getting lazy...
