didn't realize rearsets came in that many pieces. But I guess it makes sense for partial replacements.

CONGRATS!

I love woodcraft products. I only wish that they made the F4I rearsets in black, and that I had purchased the brake/shift lever too!

It was 70 today. I rode to work. My bike doesn't need any repairs (well, it does, but nothing that's going to prevent me from riding)

Sucker who? Unless it's raining, I'm on the bike.

You've obviously never had to deal with the idiots that don't know how to drive when it's dry, let alone when it's wet. I won't deal with traffic on the bike when it's raining.

It did kind of suck to crash on the 13th track day of the season last summer, how many track days did you do again?

Hah! I don't need to justify it. I dare you to survive a 35 minute commute, in the rain, in Orange County. Granted I see a few here and there that do it, but it's not worth it in my opinion.

I also guess I should have phrased that differently. I have no issues riding in the rain, I've done it a few times, but I won't commute in the rain.

Commuting in the rain isn't as bad as you think. Just plan accordingly.

What's the big deal with getting wet anyways? People all over the world don't have cars and get by just fine. We are spoiled in America by this notion that we can't get wet or ever be cold or hot.

I think what he's trying to say is, the people around drive poorly in the rain, and he'd rather not chance being in an accident. Getting wet is not the deciding factor when choosing to leave the bike at home here.
