Rode in real gentle like - rainbows on the road don't make for great traction - saw a guy on a Harley - that was it.    

P.S. No speed cops either.

As for rainbows, my understanding is, that the tar being "grainy" holds the deposits of Deisel, Oil, Rubber etc in the grains, when it rains after a long dry spell. these deposits rise to the surface coating the road in this delightful slippery layer. After a few rains it is dissapated and not so extreme.

Thanks Welsh - just imagine all that stuff now going down the drains and is probably just dumped into the river systems.

Up untill about 7:00 this morning, we had 40 mm rain. The streets are like dams because of all the crap that have gathered there in the meantime.
It only stopped raining hard about an hour ago :o

And I had to take the bike in for its 6000km service.
;D


But I have noticed that people lose intelegence behind a steering weel when it rains like this. I have witnessed about 3 near colisions today because of stupidity, not wet roads.

I will fess up to this though - there was NO way i was going to ride home in this afternoons storm - jeepers it was pissing down.

Had my bro in law pick me up, took him home and brought his car home.

So if you drove past a guy in a black ford focus wearing a rallye 2 pro waterproof inner and didn't wave - SHAME ON YOU!

I rode home in that, with my "light rain" suit. I was drenched and will not be using that at all anymore. It was a test anyway, as this rain suit was designed for cycling and can apparently not handle high speed droplets at all. But today I had to come in with the cage as everything including my "rain proof" laptop backpack is drenched.

Most important lesson learned yesterday... never, ever, forget to check that the zip on your raisuit pants is up.... :-[ :-X
Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.

Anyone rode last night down London rd through Alexandra? That was scary, had to dodge rocks, bricks, flash flood water, mud, diapers, dead dogs, people running around like chickens, and of course some very dangerous cage drivers. :confused2:

And sorry again: no time to take pictures.

Rode out of the office into a street river - instant wet feet as the level was way above boot level - rain pants don't work for that - after sliding around the first bend, decided to go a bit slower - took an extra 10min to get home, but made it. In one piece.  My man was wonderful - was standing under the pattio with towels ready.  My gloves, helmet and boots were soaked, otherwise that new IXS jacket worked brilliantly.  And the rain pants above the knees. 

Trying to sort out stuff to ride with today was the fun part - other helmet, other gloves, other boots - jacket was fine and rain pants were dry - so I'm ready for it today. 

Saw one other guy on a silver 650GS with silver helmet - only other "idiot" out there.  Gotta say, after the first slide, I actually enjoyed myself.  Need to find some anti-fogging stuff that is industrial-grade though.   ;D ;D ;D
