I vote for GixerKat and BearKat. Riding all the way up from LoCal to Hotlink's B-day party and back in cold, steady, rain on the freakin' 5 Fwy! May not seem like much to you guys back east but for us, un-freakin-believable!!
Why thank you TDRcomm. Don't worry, it was pretty uh-freakin-believable on my end too. It was Knotts berry farm to Malibu (5 to the 101?) and then Malibu to San Diego (405 to the 5) it didn't stop raining till about Oceanside. No rain gear either. That trip taught me the reason people drive H2 Hummers that are lifted about 10" of the ground......its so they can not see me and come into my lane, almost run me over and scare the cr@p out of me.

People buy Land Cruisers for that purpose, too.

I have ridden in snow, ice, rain, 0 degree weather, 1000 miles days, and all for the fun of it! I don't usually ride in those conditions, but I will if I have to. And I don't even have any waterproof pants!

I agree with BearKat that was a pretty harrowing ride. My dumbest was riding a brand new Honda CBX (purchased the day before) from Chicago in Freezing rain to Columbus Ohio (where it was snowing) and being unable to move my feet off the pegs when I hit a red light in my home town. Needless to say, it looked pretty funny on it's side in the snow!! Took me 9 1/2 hours to make that trip!!
