Yesterday I road 32 miles into my morning job at 7:00 am, Weather report said rain by 3:00pm and gone by 5:00pm. No problem left the 1st job went to my 2nd job 40 miles away @ 12:30pm. Then the weather people started changing the reports. Severe thunderstorms by 9:00pm. Okay I leave work @ 10:30pm shouldn't have a problem. I did put my rain suit on before going. Made it 3/4 's of the way home 28 miles and the sky opened up on me. Okay I'm still dry not to worry. Then the quarter sized hail like to beat me to death!! OUCH!!!!! I got into my carport with my shins and hands hurting, set the bike on the peg, turned it off and yelled "WHAT A RIDE!!!" :D
My hands and shins have been sore all day! I rode about 10-12 miles in that stuff.
Total round trip of 125 miles. I'm not gonna trade that experience for nothin' !!!

:D

The bad part about this ride is, it was at night and half way through it some jerk with hi-beams started tailgating me. It was bad enough the windshield and my helmet shield fogged up from the cold but the light whited out eveything in from of me. So I pulled off in the church parking lot to let the dummy pass. Then I noticed I was under a big shade tree next to the church, not a good place to be with lightning going off all around me. :eek:
So I moved out agian (in a hurry).

:D
