    You may get some rain on the west coast or the panhandle.
    Stay east or bring a rain suit. Do not worry, ride happy.

    Thanks guys, I opted for an instate travel over the weekend instead of heading south. It was a last minute change while on the bike leaving driveway. Do I go 1200 miles and possibly deal with rain for most of the week or hang around close by?

    Not that I'm opposed to rain or riding it, but I didn't want to go FLA for the rain, wanted to go for the sun!

    Here's a ride report from my ride if interested...

    Ida was a non event, blown out of proportion by the media of course...At least down here the media were hysterical about it, untill they interviewed a local in AL who said there was nothing going on...
    I am sure the newscasters were disappointed not being able to report some misery...(insert sarcasm)

    Started raining Monday night in west Alabama and stopped about 5 PM last evening.

    Perfect sunshine and 70 degrees Fahrenheit at the moment.

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.
