Just a thought about National Rally weather. The last few years with the rally in July we've been having some really HOT weather (it's JULY), otherwise fairly nice just hot. People complain, as people do, so they move it to June a month at the end of the rainy season in most of the Country. This year we're going South and may or not have rain. BUT next year we'll be crossing 3/4 of the Country.
If we were going to Great Falls Montana this year we would have to cross the Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri (twice) rivers all at their highest flood stage in decades. I've only ridden through a flood area once (Missouri river in Nebraska) and it's a not good feeling, seeing as your unfamiliar with the area you don't know if your riding into the flood or away from it and you don't dare use the secondary roads. Next year will be interesting - I'm looking forward to it.

...nowadays I have two good wheels
And I seek refuge in aluminum and steel
It takes me out there for just a little while
And the years fall away with every mile

Well start of an 600+ mile 10 hour day and it's raining.  
I guess it's better that sitting home talking about taking a ride :lol:
Kind of. :boohoo
