Rain is a likely experience with motorcycle travel. I hit it three times. One was in the mountains of North Carolina when I was just having fun.
This was my second day on the road. My goal was St Louis. At first I thought I could shoot that gap but then saw it was closing. Further, as it was morning, the storms would get more intense, so going then was my best bet.
My last day on the road. A few minutes earlier I saw this ahead so pulled off at a gas station and waited it out since it would clearly pass in about half an hour.
