After almost a week of rain, I get to ride to work today and just about the rest of the week. I am so happy epper:.
Today has been great here .I blew off every thing I should have been doing and rode all day some fast ,some slow,I was gone long enough to eat two meals ,meet a bunch of riders I had never met before at Jolly Pirate donuts in Ashland that were riding every kind of bike imaginable but hey ,they were having donuts and coffee and talking bikes. Then I went to my daughters house and we went out for dinner and I rolled in here about 11:40 and had went thru two tanks of gas.I also went to the park and watched the old men Ogling the pretty young women walking and it dawned it me I would probably be considered one of them by the pretty young ladies and since I am not ready to be grouped with the old lechers feeding the squirrels it was time to move on.All and all as Craig Ferguson says"It's a Great Day for America",Time to lay down awhile.Us old guys need to rest after such a strenuous day.Spring Fever is in full swing.Nice. I just got back..its about 90 degrees here...bike ran like a top..those k and n air filters look sharp! Old dudes were checking out the earshave...or maybe im just preoccupied with it.
This ain't my first load of pumpkins wib,I just don't wear a tie and dress clothes,I do manual labor and do it out side in all kinds of weather not the climate controlled environment indoors.I am not a wimp by any means,but I am smart enough not to leave home in the rain,But I do have to come home in it once in a while.Totally unnecessary when I have another vehicle that is dry inside and paid for, sitting in the drive that gets 30 MPG.Wet weather is dangerous on a bike more so than cold weather riding.I can ,I just choose not to ride in the rain unless I am already out.I understand your situation and don't blame you for doing what you do for commuting,but I don't have to and ain't going to till I do. Quit the day to day grind and work for yourself ,by yourself and lets see how fast you get tough,have yourself a nice oneyou damn cagers. I do a 132 miles a day rain or shine, yeah its not as fun in the rain but it sure is cheaper. I have to dress for work too, dress pants, shirt and tie. come on guys, tough it up!!!!!!!!!!!!
