FYI: The forecast keeps changing...not for the better...30% rain chance during the day & 70% rain chance in the evening. Not that I don't mind a little light rain but just saying.

Yeah GR, I've been watching the weather too, but like you, I don't mind a little rain. If it takes a turn for the worse, we can re-evaluate. I've missed riding 2 weekends in a row, withdrawals are setting in

Sorry Papa G, Spring will be here before you know it...hopefully

We'll be there unless is't fooking pouring Sunday morning. Like eFn, I'm going through withdrawals after 2 weeks without riding. At least it's supposed to be warm. Maybe we can even find a dry spot or two.

WTF? Two days ago the forecast was sunny and upper 60's now we get this http://www.weather.c...?dayNum=1&role=

40's and rainy isn't really my idea of a fun ride. If you guys ride please be safe. I'll hopefully catch up with you soon on another ride.

Doesn't mother nature know that crappy weather isn't allowed on the weekend?! :angry:

fiasco, my bike wouldn't start! cranked and cranked but wouldn't start. Spent the day cursing and kicking it. Tried the WFO throttle trick this am and it started right up. We didn't miss much, though, the weather was pretty crappy all day

I had the same problem with my 05 FJR when the temps were in the 50's and it was cloudy, rainy and damp for several days. Turned out that the 12 v side of my coils had taken on too much moisture. There was some corrosion on the electrical connectors where the wires attach to the 12v side of the coils. A little cleaning and some di-electric grease and I was up and running. Don't know if that's worth much, but it's an easy item to check and/or fix.
