So today I go to pick up my new-to-me R6. I'm feeling good, ready to ride it to a friends house where I'm storing it for a month while I'm on leave. I get to the guys place and get everything sorted out and off I go. I'm currently stationed in NC so of course, the sunny weather goes goodbye and it starts raining in about 5 minutes. A little rain turns into a downpour. Downpour turns into ping pong ball sized hail, lightning and thunder. Of course my new helmet is on backorder so I have to use the old one that the guy gave me with the bike that is fogging like mad. I rightfully decided to pull over and wait out the worst of the storm and think the rest is going to go great. Well it only rains a little bit for the rest of the trip but about 10 minutes later I come up on a HUGE traffic jam because the biggest road in Fayetteville is entirely closed. After about 20 minutes of stopping and going I get to run around some weird neighborhoods I don't know at all to try and find a way around it. Of course there are branches, pine cones, etc. all over the road from the storm. After dodging all that crap I finally made it to my buddies house over an hour after I started...drenched, tired, and with a big smile on my face. That was not only my first ride on my R6 but also my first ride on a sport bike period. Interesting way to be introduced into the world of riding. I'm just glad I made it there period. Heres some pictures of the new bike.

It certainly stormed like a mad man in Fayetteville today. I got stuck in it as well, but in my car and it still sucked. Too bad your not staying in the area, can always use more R6 members in NW Arkansas :(

Glad you made it through the storm ok. I got caught here in Houston yesterday in a huge out of no where rain storm. Rain was coming down side ways and the wind was blowing like crazy. Rain drops were huge. Just dropped down to 45 and kept going cause you could see the sun a couple miles up the road. Sure enough it was clear and the road was dry. By the time I got home I was almost completely dry.
