I've had to ride the last couple days cause I snapped a rear suspension arm on my car. Damn it sucks to ride in the rain, so easy to lock up the wheels.

I just got new boots, A*s SMX Waterproof, so I'm going to try riding a few days in the wet anyways to try them out.

I was out today, not far of a ride.

But omg, I've been riding all winter with frozen hands and soaking wet.
It finally feels like spring.

I was going to insure mine in April as well, but the past few days has been so nice that I might insure her a week early.
