    The thing about it that really blows goats is that if it the whole world does flood, it'll only increase the squid population.

    Stupid clouds and their stupid rain.

    Oh well, gives me some time to get a few odds and ends fixed up without feeling bad about having the bike apart and potentially miss a nice day to ride.

    And with any luck, I could get tires mounted in the next week too.

    I wish I'd delayed all my maintenance.. I spent several saturdays in my garage in April when I could have been out riding. Now the VFR is sitting in the garage perfectly clean, tuned up and ready to go, I may not hate rain as much as some but this is just insane.

    On top of that I rebuilt my mountain bike with a bunch of new parts, I've been dying to ride that, and I've only gotten to ride it for 1 hour since the new parts went on, solid rain + muddy trails, kind of irresponsible for me to take it out.

    I rode my bicycle on the road the other day in the rain and you'd have thought I took that through a mud pit... it is just a MESS out there.

    edit: Nice now we even have a flood warning in effect! I was supposed to be taking my first weekend trip on the motorcycle for this year this weekend but with solid rain all 3 days forecast all across the entire route I've decided to take the car.

    Off topic, hey Ben do you know where I might be able to find a halfway decent set of integrated V brake levers and 8 speed shifters? 8 speed seems to be a bit tricky to find these days. Looks like Ebay is the best bet.

    Avoid integrated levers/shifters like the plague...

    They are just a way to lock you in and pay even more when you break them or want to swap out parts...

    I just learned that the hard way.

    (At least for MTB - that is the only way to go for road bikes)

    I think I have some SRAM shifters in a box in the basement. I'd let them joints go for pennies on the dollar...

    Bahfuckinshitbitchass...
    The SRAM joints are 9spd. and I found some 8spd Deore LX shifter/lever combos, but the levers are for cantilever brakes.
    See what happens, Larry...

    I looked out my window and I think I saw a dry patch on the road outside today. Then it started raining again.

    Why spend the money? Trash bags are sleek and all shiny....looks good enough for me.



    The only water proof thing I need is to stay home when it's raining outside. I HATE riding in the rain!

    I have been back and forth to New York 3 times in the last 2 weeks and have seen 15 - 20 people on motorcycles riding in the rain. I saw 3 today, and the rain was so hard I could only see the vehicle in front of me. All types too Harley's Gold Wings and Sportbikes.

    My dad told me I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. So I became an Asshole.
