  • Re: Date for the 9th Annual Cherohala Chill Out.

    Sorry I missed it this year, but it's a three day ride each way for me. Not mere hours like many of you. Guess I'm getting too old for the BIG trips.

      Deb and I stopped in Madison IN Sun. night cause of rain. got a good meal and a good night sleep. Then pushed out at 6:45 this morning for the last 425 miles almost all in a light rain. We need to get so new rain gear, any suggestions? I was wet from chin to belt. Both of us felt like we were sitting in a puddle.lol Home safe and laundry now in the washer. Also need to replace the weather seal around the lower storage on the new RAH. The hard rain around Lexington pushed water in to soak our pillows and clothes, at least a couple gallons.

        I have been pretty darn happy with the Olympia rain gear found at https://olympiamotosports.com

            Rob I’ve been well pleased with my Firstgear rain suit, it’s lightweight unlike my other Nelson Rigg suit that was good for cooler weather. Another option I got to try by accident was Harley Davidson’s premium rain gear. I was riding my cousin’s bike and I came out of a hospital into their parking structure and it was dumping buckets. Luckily cuz is my size and I stayed bone dry in a frog strangler. My cousin didn’t see the humor when I told him that since it was a Harley suit I figured it would leak!

                Made it home today, encountering a few rogue showers on the ride home today.
                Is it time for the next Chill Out yet??

                  If next year's Chill Out is on the last weekend of June It could be our jumping off point for our 2 year journey around the USA. That would be a GREAT sending off party for Deb and I. ???????
