Inclement weather......trip to the gorge cancelled!!

It looks like this isn't going to be the best weekend for a motorcycle camping trip. I wasn't going to change my plans over a minor sprinkle but lots of rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for this region.

The rain suit that I ordered will arrive today, so I might test it out this weekend on a ride around the neighborhood.

Check out this neat site I found that lets you build your own checklist for a motorcycle camping trip: Motorcycle Trip Checklist

Postscript: We did end up going to the gorge, but by car. And there wasn't a drop of rain the entire trip! So much for the weather forecast. I saw plenty of day-riders there but no one who was on a motorcycle camping trip.

Good thing you did that...still enjoyed your trip and didn't have to worry about the weather. I'm not that tough to do camping in rain, nor do I like to ride in it--so when you ride your own ride its more comfy and all turns out just fine.... Glad you had fun!

Thanks for a bunch of useful info here. The long ride is truly interesting for me. That trip would make for a solid book and the pictures...incredible.
