Default The hail storm

     

Last week my town, Gladstone, had the biggest hail storm recorded in Australia... and at that time i happened to be out riding.
Lets just say it was a scary and bruising experiance, i had to ride 5km though hail to get home.....
When it started i heard this big crack on my helmet and i didnt know what was happening.
No damage to bikes though, but my friends brand new fairlane car got smashed up.

Wow man. All I can say is WOW. Last year it was hailing horribly at my house and I couldn't even bring myself to run out in it to put my truck in the garage. Luckily my good old Chevy survived with only 1 dent amazingly. Every other car in the neighborhood was trashed. Glad to hear you and the bikes made it back safely.

I guess you could call me a pansy but I was standing on my porch and it sounded like WW2 was happening in my backyard. I wasn't about to step out into that nastiness.

I know man it's all good. I like to get a little friendly flaming going on every once in a while. Nothing anyone says on the internet really bothers me unless it truely is a personal attack and i actually know the person. So feel free to point and laugh.
