Had to miss tonight...rode to Miami for a meeting tomorrow. Crossing the Alley and ran smack into one of the biggest storms I've seen in a long time. Lightning hit a couple of hundred feet in front of me.

It was so close, I jumped, hit the brakes, felt the rear end slide out from under me... caught it and then asked myself what the hell I was doing riding when the weather was that bad! On the other hand, I didn't want to be a human lightning rod. Stopping was not an option.

Shoulda gone to Biff's! :lol:

Glad to hear you made it to Miami safely. There aren't a lot of places to stop and hide from rain or lightning out on the alley. It usually isn't too bad riding across in the rain as long as there aren't a lot of big trucks around.
