Glad that you make it home safely.
we were all going 60 on I-75
i couldn't see a thing.... lucky to be alive
saw 1 big accident happen 2 seconds before me... a car, backwards in a ditch on the right side of the road
2 lightning flashes with INSTANT thunder.... scared the poop out of me
i had my SUMMER/AIR/MARSEE outfit on.....
felt like being riddling with machine gun bullets
and my $300.00 BMW GORTEX boots....
6 inches of water INSIDE them when i got home...... from the RUNOFF down my legs.... no kidding
i've ridden 150K miles over the years (nothing by BMW standards, i know).....
but, this was some of the worst weather i have personally been in
i don't know that my boots will EVER be right again
