I had about 4 hours of medium to heavy rain and then about one hour of extreme rain. Thunder, lightning and water and more water. In two places cars were pulling off to the side of the Interstate , I kept on trucking as I did not feel like being rear ended. Eleven hours later and I am home.

All told , regardless of the rain , I had a great time and a good ride on Sat.

Looking forward to all the upcoming pictures as I didn't take any.

Dang Mac! Sounds like a tough ride home. Glad you and the bike are alright. I left the hotel around 10 am and guess what! Yeah, the sun was coming out. NEVER FAILS! Thank you for making it down and thanks for the BV cokes!

Hey Mac, I guess this means you ain't made of sugar, huh?

Glad you made it home ok and with a grin..
I don't care what anyone says, riding in rain ain't fun.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.
