Ernie's case in point...
Earlier today it was a great day for riding..
as soon as lunch time came around , this happened (see below)....

There's currently about 4-5 inches of water in my parking spot at work....
I bet at 5:30pm when Im leaving the sun will be out and the birds-a-chirping....



You might have made it home between the remnants of the storm. 6:30 and the rain has mostly stopped but it's still cloudy as hell

Yup That day there was nowhere to park the bike at work that would have been protected from falling trees and shit, so home to the cabled down shed.
The shed and bikes escaped damage, but when the winds hit 110, the roof on the house next door folded over. Half, (the far half) slid over my place and landed in the lot next door and the near half ended up on my back porch. I had to cut it up with a chainsaw and drag chunks to the empty lot with my T-Bird before I could get the bike out of the shed.

Been raining here for three days straight HARD...Flash flood warning everywhere. A town over by Buck and Dot in Arcadia Wisconsin, I'm told is evacuated for flooding. Now this happened in the spring, then again in July, and now again. I have NEVER seen the rivers around here this high heading into fall/winter.

Case in point: Just checked local news site...

Submitted by news-staff on Thu, 09/23/2010 - 4:31pm


(AP) _ Gov. Tim Pawlenty has declared a state of emergency due to the flooding in southern Minnesota.

The order issued Thursday afternoon activates the National Guard to provide emergency relief.

It also triggers an emergency response from the Department of Public Safety and other state agencies.

More than 10 inches of rain has fallen on parts of southern Minnesota since Wednesday and the rains continued Thursday evening.

The storm has closed schools, washed out roads, flooded dozens of basements and strained municipal sewer systems.

Red cross officials say the group has set up emergency shelters in Owatonna, Truman and Zumbrota. The transportation department is recommending against unnecessary travel in parts of southeastern Minnesota.

be safe up there Clay!

I've had to ride to work in the rain twice this week, today was a little worse than I typically care to do, but it's supposed to clear off and be mid 60's for ride home, which should be sweet.....

The bike looks completely trashed right now from the rain. Oh well, as someone has said.....shit do happen..

Harley makes a rain repellent product that is safe for plastic. I use it on my shield and my glasses...works great. Reapply after a few weeks. I highly recommend it to anyone that rides in the rain. RainX for bikers!

That stuff does work well. I'm out now but it is good. And, I've always heard (so I've never done it) DO NOT USE RAIN-X ON LEXAN. I guess it "fogs" it pretty badly.

Right now I'd kill for a ride in the rain. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)

Speaking of kill, did the Keltec 22 magnum ever come out on the market..?
Have you noticed we haven't posted recently about hand guns.? Must be a cyclical thing,huh ?

No, Will. No pmr-30 yet. I don't think they ever will bring it out. Yet, if you go to their website it would lead you to believe it's available now. There is NO DISTINCTION between it and any other model.

I haven't updated myself recently. I think the thing just doesn't work. Any which way, Kel-Tec is completely incompentent!

I had "commented" on Scotto's thread about the Kel-Tec and Ruger. If the magnum happens to come in for me I'll prolly buy it. But, it will be the first and last Kel-tec purchase I'll ever make.

I ride 45 miles round trip to work. I don't care about rain...getting wet doesn't bother me.....but severe lightning scares the shit out of me. The fact that I feel like I'm riding with big lightning rods (20" apes) in my hands doesn't help. Hail is also no bueno. I've been caught in a bad hail storm before, and it felt like I was being ambushed by a battalion of Medal of Honor obsessed fat kids armed with CO2 rifles.

I would like to think that I am smarter now, but there have been a few times that I pushed through a rain storm that I definitely should've stopped for. During one particularly bad one, I was going 40 mph on I-70, couldn't see the highway to save my life, but thought that I was okay as long as I could stay centered between the tail lights of the semi ahead of me. I figured he was on the highway, so I probably was too. Fast forward a few years, and my ass would be pulling over and waiting it out at the first bar or diner I could find.

Damn, I just responded to a four year old topic. That's on me.....my bad.

Lol. You resurrected a zombie thread.
Stopping and waiting is a better choice. Older is wiser.

I don't mind being wet as much as I don't like to ride Braille, I've ridden through some pretty shitty weather out of lack of options and pore use of commen sense.

I would like to think I've gotten older and wiser but that's yet to be determined.
