Ugh, coming back from Troy and I saw the clouds. I though I could beat the rain and I almost did. I got all the way to Elizabeth Lake road...right in front of the Irish Tavern, waiting for the light and all of a sudden it was an instant down pour!! I was soaked within seconds! I was only 10 minutes from my house but it felt like hours because everyone was driving so slow. I saw a few other bikers that got caught too.
Of course, as soon as I got home, it stopped and the sun was out!
ahah, i was out in ann arbor and we tucked into a parking garage just as it hit out there... rode back up 23 to 96 and to west bloomfield with nothing but a few sprinkles and the road spray from previous showers... sorry to hear about your luck!
