Rainy Ride Home

I recorded this last Friday night of my ride home, just as a Thunderstorm was coming into the SE Missouri area. I did some editing, but left most of the riding thinking that some people might like to see the farm & countryside views. It's kinda long, but so is my commute. Please let me know what you think :) . Also this is running Avon RoadRider tires with over 7k miles on them and I thought they did just fine in the rain and water puddles.
Thanks, Tony

That rain sounds like someone shaking a spray can. Reminds me of that trip on the Bonneville where mother nature quite literally tried to drown me from the sky. Nice video.
