Nighttime Summer Rain

I like riding in rain, but I love riding in rain on a warm summer night. Not as insane as it sounds, but it definitely expands the element of risk on a motorcycle. Give a bit of time for rain to soak the road, wash away the slippery stuff first, then realize motorcycles don’t melt away in the wet, and tires designed to channel water still grip- even in a lean. Engines keep humming, lights keep lighting, and brakes keep braking on mostly empty roads. The bike may require smoother inputs in less predictable conditions, but wheels keep rolling.

Finally, a quick ride with DaringDaughter before she starts back to work for the summer. These opportunities are so few now 😞

Decided to try trunkless, now understand the appeal. much less space, but 35lbs gone from above CG makes a completely different bike (and Bagger Vision looks so good!)!
