Yep. He had pants when he started the trip. It's not an adventure unless you lose your pants.

We don't need no stinkin' rain gear!

I am suprised the face shield is up though, I can't stand rain hitting me in the face when I'm riding.

I can't either. He probably can't see shit with it down. Bugs on the sheild turn into a nice unwipable goo when it rains. I know the face, I've done it.

She certainly isn't helping matters by leaning the wrong way. Just another fine example as to how it is always the woman's fault.

If her hero chose a bike that could effect more than 20 degrees of lean they'd be ok.

This guy deserves props for a good panic stop. Nice grip on the FRONT brake.
