    It's raining here now. I'm going back to bed.
    Last night I looked at a future radar scan and it looked clear in the areas of the ride, but it doesn't look like that now.
    :-( Was looking forward to my first ride in a while.

    It does look dire Roger.
    If it is not raining when I get up, I'll be there; if it is already raining and radar looks bleak, I will be going back to sleep or reading the paper. Hope to see you, enjoy without me if you don't.

    Will check radar in am. Is anyone still in if we can dodge most of the rain by using the weather radar on the GPS?

      I guess that is Blood Mtn about 50 miles in, cool!

    I've loaded the route in the GPS, now let's see if I can make it work. :) More importantly, I hope the rain holds off on Saturday, but not looking good right now. Thanks for leading Keith; we'll try the cookout idea another time.

    My sister and her husband are visiting us from Ohio and one of my grandsons birthday saturday, so no ride for me this weekend. Missed the last ride... had my Wing serviced, new fluids, final drive oil, valves adjusted and new Iridium plugs, ready for a trip mid May for my Wife and me. Have a great ride this saturday, see you all next time.
