Sad afternoon for my F4

I'm on campus prepping for the FE and might have the campus police come see me if I rolled it in the building. Love to hear the F4 barking in the Engineering wing of campus! It should be though...right?

I did buy to ride so I'm not worried. Plus it's made of Italian un-obtanium so corrosion is not a concern...least that's what I'm telling myself.

Back to pumping neurons!

Looks like England. MV can ride the rain. Just need to lubricate the chain.

Came over the mountains last Thursday at 10,000 ft in a cool downpour late afternoon and she did great. Kept the rest of the boys behind me.

There more grip in the rain than we think. As long as it's not on high traffic areas.

Bike handle the rain fine, no doubt. Just be sure to lubricate everything that needs lubrication periodically. My bike came home in the rain on open trailer, a thunderstorm actually for over 90 mile trip. Just be sure to keep lubricating, hehe.
