    Default Do you ride in the rain?

    Some do all the time because they are honey badgers.

    Some don't because they fear the slipage.

    Some do because they always have a cloud over their head.

    Some don't because they don't want to dirty their bike.

    Some have been in many of the catagories above...

    What say you?

    I remember getting caught in that fucked up storm back in Aug of 08 with Gas Man...Big House...and a few other people...what a day that was
    when I had the Chop...I would try to avoid riding in the rain...but have got caught in it before...

    Now that I have the Ultra...I don't worry about getting caught in the rain like I did with the Chop...but if its pouring outside...I wouldn't pull the bike out in it just to go for a ride...

    If I'm taking a trip I'll ride out even if it's raining. Else wise if I'm just kicking around town I won't bother getting the bike out since rain + shitty SEMich drivers = bad combo to be dodging.

    The rain only tops me if im going to leave and its pouring. Unless im planning to be at an out door event like the chili cook off. Probably the only time i didnt ride due to a forecast of rain but then it barely rained on the way home so i was upset and also got showed up by my grandpa because he rode and i didnt.

    I avoid it. There have been times when the bike was my only transportation.

    I will ride in the rain if I have to. Won't head out 'just to ride' in the rain, so I would cancel a ride, but not a trip.

    Rain never stopped me.
    Unless its like the guy I saw today.
    It is 38 degrees and pouring rain and this guy is riding.
    I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.

    If I'm leaving the house and it's raining I usually won't ride. If I'm away from home I'll ride regardless in the rain, don't give to shits!
