    I start my long wet ride saturday from here in Spokane to Lincon City, Or. The family rented a place for vacation on the coast so I decided to ride my bike cause the Or coast has some great roads. However due to my luck it seems rain is in the forecast grrrrrrrrr lol

    No I dont be for attention...The ride I will be taking soon is exactly what is going to happen lol I wasnt thinking how people would read it...
     
  9. I personally hate riding in the rain but...if you have the gear...it's actually not bad...a good learning experience. If you think you're gonna get wet...get some raingear prior...you'll spend less time thinking how miserable you are and more time thinking about your riding...

    Have a great trip!

  13. My brother and I once spent a few days at Lincoln City. There was a steady, hard wind the entire time we were there and my pickup was covered with a thin layer of salt spray. If you ride your bike, keep it covered if you are staying anywhere near the beach.
     
  14. And as soon as you get home, completely wash and detail your bike especially including the underside, aluminum will corrode and steel, rust.
     
  15. Damn the title had my hopes up. :evil:
