It might not hurt us but i still dont like riding in the rain, i have to either wear my textiles or waterproof over suit which is a pain, constantly having to wipe my visor, i could think of better ways to spend an afternoon.

If it looks too bad i will come in my car cos i know i wont enjoy it.

Remember AR08 forecast for the whole weekend was rubbish, yet we sat in T-shirts at the lunchstop in swange and basked in the sun.

We live in the UK for goodness sake if we never went out when the forecast threatened rain, we'd never ride out bikes at all.

A bit of rain isnt going to do you any harm.
It was that nice even dogs wearing sunglasses were surfing

Fair enough, but I'd wait till Thursday night before you make your final decision, the Metcheck long range forecast is IMHO completely unreliable.

Agree with Fizz, metcheck isn't normally great till the day before. In fact most of them are not that great.

No-one likes rain, but this is the UK, it rains from time to time. Also, how many times have you taken notice of a days forecast which has turned out to be totally different to the weather you get? To let some forecast for three days time make you contemplate not coming, or coming in the car, is just ridiculous. Remember 1987...there will be no hurricane?

Stop being old women...that's my job!

On a positive note the BBC are suggesting it will prob clear for the afternoon anyway. Classic UK weather, so just deal with it :

"Remaining breezy and cool with sunshine and showers during Thursday. Another band of rain is likely during Friday, perhaps clearing by the afternoon. More sunshine and showers on Saturday"

I'm the same, I saw the BBC weather tonight and the entire west coast and M6 is allegedly going to be under a blanket of rain on friday.

I for one will not be riding 300 miles in pouring rain after only a few hours kip. I'll decided on Friday when I wake up.

I ride several hundred miles in the pouring rain to such events. In fact just to see friends.

In fact to go further I rode to Caerphilly from Halifax in the ****ing rain and freezing cold last year for a very special person. It was so bad that stupid cars in front were almost unseeable. The day after I rode back and once it had got very dark it was foggy oop Norf, and a certain Scottish hard lassie rode even further home after we left her on the Mway....

Bloddy stop moaning, its once a year folks, ya bunch of old jessies. If I weren't so fat and preggers I'd come down there and whoop all yer asses.
