Are we going to get a dry day soon haha!
Was dry for about an hour this morning then p*ssed it down!
With the weather how it is, I am pretty sure I am going to be more confident in the wet than the dry rolleyes


Honestly wouldn't believe it is the start of July the way it is going.

I thought it was just a Scottish thing but it would appear to be nationwide. Driving me insane.

I'm just praying that all the rain for the whole year is coming in this month or 2....Then that'd make it worth it!

There was talk about it on the radio earlier that due to some freak occurrence happening weather-wise in the states (gulf stream something or other), that there's going to be no measured improvement for 8 weeks! I swear i could hear my bike sobbing in the garage.

It's starting to get somewhat 'irritating' now. I re-newed my insurance at the start of June...& have enjoyed 3 rides so far! irked

Yo G... turn your sprinkler off!

The annoying thing is, my girlfriend is Hungarian & she is currently in Hungary finishing her degree (back September smile ) & they are having 'scorchio' weather. Typically 27 - 35 deg C & has been for weeks!

You know what I was going to pop a thread up saying the same thing last week, its shocking I've used my bike 3 times, I've booked a track day in Aug but wondering if that's going to be wet in which case I won't be going.

I hate riding in the rain, having to wipe the visor every minute is so annoying!

But then again, it is typical UK weather. Come to December time, we will eventually get our summer.

Yeah, but you're going with a bunch of farmers. Just remember, when you're cleaning his machine to get in there niiiiice an' deep. Oh and don't forget to pack your speedos. (Bobski removed the 'S' from them though, so go careful if the resort has a kids pool)

Also sick to death of it. My bike is a toy. For fun. Getting wet is not fun. (stop sniggering at the back).

I've only had my licence for three months. GETTING BORED OF NOT BEING ABLE TO RIDE NOW.
