Weather!!!

Post by Bucho » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:30 pm

2018 was very rainy. It seemed like every ride I went on, I was checking weather. I got rained on, it rained the day before, or I was packing up qnd leaving as it started raining...

Hoping and praying for a little dryer 2019. Though its already pissing me off as I want to ride on Wed. Not sure if that will happen...

Nothing's more frustrating that having a new bike in the garage and not being able to get out and enjoy it. I put a battery pig tail on my WRR so I've been out riding a bit on the road dodging ice patches just to break it in.

I'm practicing balance on the EM in the garage. Will start basic wheel bouncing soon.

Oh, yeah, I'll bet that does suck. I can imagine all kinds of problems with that and I bet I don't even come close to the real world problems. It reminds me of a story my dad told of when he was stationed in Germany as a part of the motor pool (he was a tank mechanic). They had a vehicle get stuck in the mud and sent in a retriever after it, which got stuck too. They ended up with 5 or 6 big machines, each bigger than the last, stuck in that mud and had to bring in equipment from another country to clean it up.

I am definitely hating all the rain. Besides riding the dirt bike I also run trails. My wet weather shoes, which have channels and drain holes, are falling apart due to the mess of 2018.

Try being responsible for a major earthworks project that dealt all year with poor soil conditions. 100's of thousands spend on soil cement and drying soils not to mention the sediment and erosion controls that were obliterated by historic rainfall. We were luck we only had two stop-work orders all year.
