BTW, I passed absolutely NO motorcycles on the way into work. They forecasted rain so as expected, there was only me.

Today is one of those days here in sunny Arizona where it "might" rain, so there aren't many bikes out on the road, or in the employee parking lot.

How about "Ride to lunch" day? I've got a business lunch down at LAX (the Proud Bird) and have to ride through the pothole/SUV infested streets of LA in a couple hours...



Let's see, I've got my Crucifix, rabbits foot, 4 leaf clover...steel toes and a new Arai. But due to local laws and the 3 strikes issue I'll keep the Mod 27 at home this time.

Pretty much as I expected, few if any bikes on the road today. But on Sunday, of course, the parking lots at biker bars will be filled with shiny, barely used Harleys, their owners checking their Blackberrys and Razrs between discussions of wines and single-malt scotches.

I prefer my 4" Mod 19. Nice and light for all day carry. I love the GP100 but it's just too heavy to carry around.

I saw a lot less today than on other days...perhaps it's the 90 degree high temp we're expecting.



I don't care--I'd rather sweat a little and keep moving than sit in traffic with A/C.

You might post this a little earlier. I rode in as always, so I'm covered.



But...not many bikes out there today in Sacto - they're forecasting 15% chance of rain. I actually saw three drops where I parked. Otherwise it would have been the usual excuse of over a hunnert degrees out - "too hot to ride."



Whatever.
