    Nor Cal, of course
    So I will be picking my bike up from my LBS today. I have been trying to get it working since about last April, but because of money and other issues it has taken me this long. I was hoping to have it by the beginning of the summer, but no, school has been in session for about 3 weeks and the first rain of the season has come roughly 3 hours before the bike will be ready. I know a bunch of you are going to say that riding in the rain is fun, and I will agree with you, but I wanted at least a few dry days. Oh well at least the bike works.

    It rained a decent amount here in the SF Valley today. I doubt it was enough to make any new jumps, but probably enough to keep the dust down. I can't believe the rain didn't make its way to SB...

    I wear sh1tty clothes and something warm. glasses too, because theres nothing like road spray in the eyes

    It just feels so good to get home and wipe the bike down, then laugh at my clothes soaked and my face covered in mud. Then i make a fat cup of green tea and take a hot shower. good times
