Pouring rain all day today, can't avoid the trip, it is to have it's first service at the other end, Haven't ridden in the rain for 30 years - worried? No wet weather gear except for a spray suit used for poisons, as wet weather gear ordered 4 weeks ago from Vic. did not arrive - still in Syd( Aust. Post). No wet weather gear in my town ( Inverell at all). Tent camping at other end, raining all day down there as well. Major highway, have no choice but to run at 100kmphr due to heavy transports on the road. Not looking forward to it,, wish me luck! catch up back with you guys in 2 days time.
