No-one was monaing, simply stating facts and their preferences.

I for one know that I will not be confident or happy riding 300 odd miles in pouring rain, especially where car drivers will not be expecting bikes (they dont at the best of times, even less so in the rain!) after only a few hours sleep, to have to arrive in the rain, pitch a tent in the rain, potentially do a ride out in the rain, then dismantle a tent in the rain and ride home in the rain, then get up and do a run of 3 12 hour shifts on the Monday.

If I am out and it rains then fair enough, I deal with it. I will not however take what I consider to be an unneccesary risk by setting off on a 300 mile journey in the rain for a "once a year" event or otherwise.

My bike is my time to myself, a hobby that I enjoy, sitting on a motorway getting soaked for 300 miles is not my idea of fun.

Condition, severe weather warnings; gales and flooding predicted, AR07 Veteran.

riding is no problem in fact fun with the right gear and mindset, however putting up a tent in the rain isn't something I'm looking forward to, hard enough for me in the dry....

I wasn't taking a pop at you Fenjer. Its just every year a few spots of rain and everyone starts moaning about it

My bikes my time to myself too, and right now I'd prefer to be sat in the rain on it, than sat here talking to walls, which is all rather tedious, especially when I know 200 hundred people that I want to see once a year are going to have an absolute ace time....me not included.

And no, putting up a tent in rain isn't my cuppa either....there ain't even a Bear erection service for that this year!

Are you wiping your visor with your glove SO? If so, that won't help. The grease from the glove will make your vision in the wet worse. Try using a water dispersant spray, and turning your head sideways to clear the visor. Works for me except in slow moving traffic.

Good point Pete i do use my glove, i will try some rain repellant, cheers.

The facts are i just dont like riding in the rain, i can, and do ride in the rain, just dont like it.
Cant see what the fuss is about, we all have preferences, i dont like eastenders, but i dont force myself to watch it just for the sake of it

Weather now saying wet Friday, but better Saturday and Sunday. I'm sure they'll change their minds again tomorrow.
