Surprise!! it rained, imagine that being in the PNW. Had it today to lend a helping hand with my son at the Ridge motorsports park. It's the first track day of the season here and so it happened. RAIN! not that riding in the rain ain't doable, just makes one be really smooth on all accounts, some weren't so lucky, or good enough to heed the warning. at least 4 went down in the first outing. one was a new Duc panni, SHM, wish I had that kind of money to throw around. Any who, pretty much a damp day, with not a lot of action. Even a 6th gen tried his luck......Nope. For Gator ; This guy rocked it, funny enough he wasn't having much issues other than a rear stepping out so he said. Crazy sound too with for the most part having a straight part.
