I rode it the day before the race and I have never gotten my bikes so dirty!

The melting snow was creating run-off, and that combined with the sand they spread on the roads during the winter made for some "interesting" moments when leaned over. 1st time I've had to put a hose to my MV. :angry:

Glad to hear it's clean now.
