Default July Photo Comp - Bikes in the wet

Can't say I've ever looked forward to riding in the rain. (vs riding in the dry)
But looking back, I've had some of my most memorable rides in the rain.
So's for July....

Let's see your best rainy day rideout pics!

Must have bike in pic.
Must obviously be out on a rainy/wet day.
No hose pipes in the drive, thank you.

Here's an example to get you started.
Lover's Leap on Route 58 in Virginia, US.

Me, in the rain on the last leg of AR08. This for me was a massive day out, biggest rideout I had been on. The whole build to the AR that year was stressy. But to get all the way round that rideout route and at that point knowing I was close to the campsite, I can't describe the sheer feeling of relief !

Take by Liz on my D40 with 70-300mm VR DX Lens.

Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

This year a couple of good mates did some racing with EMRA, I turned up to their first pre-season practice and it rained hard. Between helping with wheels and tyre warmers I managed to grab this shot after one of the sessions. Summed up a brilliant day.


Edit: Replaced with a larger copy following some comments that it might have been a little on the small side
Modern motorcycles are bloody brilliant, enjoy it while we can
