It rained most of the day today. I took some pictures of the bike with the rain beads on it. Previous journalist riders had ridden the bike much harder than me, and had overheated the rear tire. This became more apparent as it tried to lock as I rode it around a bit during a let-up in the weather. Didn’t last long, as I got stuck at my favorite Italian Deli (San Carlo in Chatsworth), sipping doppios and chatting with Giovanni, who owned a Guzzi Cardelino in Rome as a kid.
So, I didn’t get to ride much as this is the first rain of the season; more than 6 months since the last. The roads are slick, and well, I live in California. I don’t have to ride in the rain if I don’t want to. Here’s some pictures of the Breva:
So I stayed inside most of the day, nursing a cough. It’s going to be good weather tomorrow.
