rode into a hale storm yesterday, when the first one hit me in the leg I thought I'd been shot, till the next one hit my windshield, thats when I realised, and thought oh shheeet
:shock: Had that twice last year and once this year. Rain, even at 60 to 65mph, doesn't usually bother me. That's what happened both times. Riding along in the rain on the highway then suddenly...the rain starts to hurt and you realize it's "pea" sized hail. I always just slow my speed and ride along saying things like, "Ok. That hurt. Ouch. Ok...this can quit any time now. Oh yeah...that hurt." :lol: Never have run into anything above small hail on the bike. I suppose if it was the golf ball size, you'd have to find a tree, pull over, and lay across the tank on your bike. :lol:

As far as "chance of rain" on my way to or from work, I always put my rain pants on before I leave. That way if I'm on the highway and it starts raining...I can easily pull over and put the jacket on. :-D
