Too late, MichiganMike. Like robin, it's mostly sunny here.
I rode "The Whizzard" to Home Depot six miles away and bought two sets of rubber gloves and rubber boots.
One compete raingear set will be stowed at work, the other at home.
"The Iron Dragon" is awaiting a suspension fork and a huge downhill racer-type front disc brake for wet weather and extreme performance.
The $$ I save from not commuting by car will easily pay for bike upgrades.
