It's the stuff that makes their jeans wet (from the outside) because they do not have good foul weather gear.

It's the stuff that keeps fair-weather riders like me cowering in the garage.

I commute via motorcycle every day, and I feel like I have been wearing my one-piece rain suit/winter gear since last October. That's almost 7 months.

You know you ride in the wrong state when you wear rain gear more than summer gear...

Fixed it for you. I've worn my rain jacket once this year. Because I was cold. Not wet.

We're supposed to be dry for at least a week and a half starting tomorrow. But no bike to enjoy it on. :-/

Went out today to Tacoma. It was cold and grey but dry on the way and it rained on me on the way home until i crossed the bridge. then the sun came out. just wiped off my bike, and it looks like it is time to go for a ride.

"No such thing as bad weather, just bad gear."
Mild winter for sure, I think the longest stretch I went without riding something was 2 weeks this one. One of the FEW advantages to living in 'The Hole'.

Yea I agree. Frickin rain. The headline from the Seattle PI;

"Seattle having its 3rd-wettest April since 1894 — with half the month left to go"

I'm leaving for Alaska in a week. Wont be back until August. Not getting much riding in with the rain and last minute projects.....,sigh
