Riding in the rain

You know all those times that you are driving comfortably in your car in the rain, you come across a motorcyclist who is soaking wet and you say, "man, I feel bad for that idiot."

Well, I'm officially one of those idiots.  I pushed my luck tonight and got caught in a nice little downpour.  Fortunately, I was only in Ballard, but I still got pretty wet.  Riding wet and in the rain is about as much fun as it sounds.  Its also a little more scary because we do not have windshield wipers on our helmets, so the water beads up on the visor and limits the vision a bit.

I think I learned a lesson tonight, but I have a feeling that this is going to happen again pretty soon.


  1. I took my endorsement class in the rain and passed. Aren't I special.

  2. Somebody must have invented motorcycle helmets with wipers.
