WELL, as Scott & Kim probably figured out, i never did outrun that storm last night Neutral
(i was riding my Honda so it wasn't a dry night for me Laughing )


I had just delivered some seasoning salt from Washington state to Kim & Scott out in queen creek, which they had been waiting for since BugInfestation III, when i franticly "Hauled @$$" home trying to outrun that monsterous monsoon. they mentioned a quick way to the 202 which i took, hit a little drizzle by Williams gateway but it wasn't too bad, i hit 202 and opened it up to 80mph, which quickly became 70mph when the HEAD WINDS hit, i was riding dry untill the 202 overpass onto the 60 West when suddenly, BAM... Quarter sized rain drops POUNDING me from the north, i ended up sitting under the Sossaman RD overpass on 60 for about an hour waiting for the rain to stop, the rain never stopped so when it bagan to slow i took off and got off on power where i then took Baseline West to Val Vista, and i was home... completely saoked mind you but home nontheless...

it was wet and dark, but all in all a good experiance for me, my bike handled great in the rain, the wind tried to knock me down but had no luck, and i can now ride in the rain without too much fear laying down my bike.

THAT SUCKED... hope you enjoyed the post Laughing Somebody had to endure the rain, why not me Cool

Yikes Preston.
I didn't endure a monsoon but since I didn't get the baja done in time for the beach, I took the motorcycle.
The wife and I rode through what we know as a monsoon here in the east for 30 minutes. She wasn't too happy. I was ok, just worried about a "cager" crossing my path.
Any hoo. It was our first "real rain" experience and it turned out fine. Just got freak'n drinched.
