While rainy conditions can create some of the most thrilling motorcycle riding opportunities, they can also be a source of danger. However, with the proper safety precautions, you can easily enjoy yourself while riding during a rainstorm.
By nature, wet roads make it difficult for you to maintain proper tire traction while you are driving. In rainy conditions, it's even more difficult to drive on naturally slick surfaces like manhole covers and road lines. When you encounter these pavement features, you should always determine if it is possible for you to avoid them. In cases when you must drive over them, never try to speed up or slow down too suddenly; you should do the same if you encounter any puddles.
When riding in thunderstorms, you must remain aware of lightning. Many riders claim that motorcyclists are in no more danger than car drivers during these weather conditions. However, you should either completely avoid riding during thunderstorms or pull off of the road in search of shelter if you hear any thunder.
