Maybe I’m not your typical motorcyclist because I absolutely love riding in the rain. I find that it heightens all my senses and can turn a mundane ride into one that becomes an intensely-focused experience. Perhaps my love of rain riding comes from the fact that, the very first time I commuted on a motorcycle, it rained – and I was prepared. (I was also terrified, but I’d only been riding for a few days.)
Still, many new (and experienced) riders won’t even consider riding when the rain comes down, and that’s really too bad. They’re missing out on what separates the weekend warriors from the hard-core motorcyclists.
