Yesterday, after we have had a week of cold weather, I decided to ride the Honda to a meeting across town. I did this after checking the Weather Channel to make sure that the weather was good. It showed 0% chance of rain all afternoon.
So, while meeting with nice clients in their dining room, the skies darkened until it started pouring down rain. Luckily, we were not finished and by the time we were it was only sprinkling. But the bike was soaked when I got on it and rode through a medium shower to the next meeting.
The ride home was ok as the rain had stopped.
But still, when they say 0%, I certainly should feel safe to ride.
