Grr stupid rain

So much rain over the past few days and the temps have been so warm. *SIGH*

Sadly I don't like riding to work in the early am in rain. Way to many pyschos on the road jostling for position and not being attentive. My poor V is sitting covered waiting for a break in the weather.

Hopefully we don't get the snow tonight and I can get up and roll in on the bike. I don't mind the cold but combine 270, wet roads with cold tires and that is one step up the risk ladder I'm not willing to take.

Other option is I just go in later so the sun/temp is up tomorrow morning.

But she is ready to roll as soon as I see the right conditions. Here's hoping for some decent weather. Maybe I'll take the time to do some PM on the bike while I wait.

No way is my baby is going to sit the whole winter.

I hear you. That's why this year I'm leaving the insurance on 'er.
Went for a great ride Friday afternoon after it had warmed up enough there would be no frost on the roads. Beautiful sunny afternoon, heated jacket liner and grips, good warm leather gloves.
I can't bear the thought of not riding for 4 or 5 months!

Dude, I feel your pain. I ran home at lunch on Monday just to ride it back to work and home again. I was hoping it wasn't my last ride of 2011. We got snow, sleet and wintry crap coming tonight. Probably be on top of you tomorrow morning. Maybe this weekend we can get in a few turns..

Woohoo - The white crap blew through before I woke up today. It was a little on the windy side but plenty warm (~40) and dry enough to get the beast out of the garage. Tomorrow looks even better!

That's funny. I'm from Northern Va. The general consensus was that Maryland drivers were horrible. lol

Hoping to become a rider soon
