Nice picture Squirrel.
The highest gust reading I got off the anemometer in my garden was only 22mph, a bit disappointing.

There would be six winters' worth of salt in that short ride. At least you made it.

Maybe not on a bike but I love being at the sea shore during a storm. The power displayed is just awesome. Great pic. Thanks!

Sounds like a good idea to me...the bike gets washed, your clothes get washed, and you get a shower all at the same time. For Free!
