Washington Cold and wet!

Recommended Posts

Tahuya was pretty packed today. Sure was cold. I didn't last to long with all the water and cold air. About froze my hands off. Was good to get the bike out though and do some trails. I wish I would of brought my Hip waders though. Damn the puddles (ponds) are getting bigger every time I go out there. Sure hope it dries up a little before the Sparkplug..

Anyone else out there? I was on my RMZ riding around.

Wear surgical gloves beneath your regular MX gloves. Keeps hands warm despite wet/cold. :banana:

Me too! Just put in new rear wheel seals and bearings and got some new pegs ready to install. The dents are out of my pipe and all the carbon inside is burnt off. Oil is changed. Just a few last things and I'm ready for the dirty poker run this weekend and the Desert 100 in a couple weeks!
