Be careful out there, guys! Depending on where you are, the weather is changing rapidly and it’s been kind of a doozy for riding. In the Pacific Northwest for the last couple weeks you could ride your bike down to meet some friends at a restaurant and it’ll have been sunny and 75° fahrenheit (~23.9° celsius) all day- you’ll walk out an hour and a half later and it’ll be pouring buckets with thunder and lightning!
A 60 y/o motorcyclist was struck by lightning this morning around 9:30a on the I5 freeway in Chehalis, Washington. The amazing part is that the rider is mostly okay. There was some damage to his helmet (pictures following).
