    Things I learned this past week.
    <ol style=\"list-style-type: decimal\">

  2. If there's only a 10% chance of rain, I'll be wet before I get home.
  3. I still can't ride between the raindrops, try as I might.
  4. Raindrops sting as much as they ever did 75 MPH.
  5. Lime-rock roads are greasier than I remember when wet.
  6. When the temperature outside hits 102º F the rear cylinder head gets really really really warm.
  7. When it's that hot out, if I don't close the fuel petcock and run some out of the carburetor bowl I have a real problem starting up.
  8. So, how was your week?

    My week sucked Bob thanks for asking. But it's the weekend and time to play golf and ride.

    My wife and I (riding two up) rode nearly fifty miles in a rain storm. We stopped once and when we thought the storm had let up some, we took off again only to be trapped with nowhere to hide in even a heavier downpour. I learned that my V-Star 1100 seemed nearly waterproof; it ran smooth all the way, not a sputter. The windshield kept my GPS mostly dry. The tires held their grip really well. And my skills have not eroded as much as I thought. But.... I am not waterproof and neither was any of the rain gear I was wearing. Got soaked to the bone. - torso, head, feet, underwear, everything. Gotta get a better rainsuit. I also learned that my wife is a real hardy gal. She didn't complain a bit.

    no matter how waterproof my gear is the water always seems to soak through the crutch, and it ain't fun on a cold day!
