never tire of watching this video.
incredible skill and bravery aided by a fantastic electronics package yet this year he is way off the pace (except Monza) and by far the weakest of the Ten Kate trio


Kiyo to Moto2??

proof to show that traction in rain is there. granted those are race RAIN tires, and he is pushing it on a high powered machine.

street tires with slower, but firm input can do 90 percent in rain, that you can in dry, in a normal riding operation.

bikes dont hydroplane (or at least its much harder to do so) with throttle on, unlike a car. small contact patch, and rounded as such creates a knife edge compared to a cars broad flat tire surface.


so for those that are scared to get out in the rain... get out in the rain. learn the experiences that offer the wet offers you. not just the bike, not just you, but also how traffic reacts. ( to rain, cage traffic and seeing a "crazy" motorcyclist in the mix)... want to be a better skilled STREET rider? get out in that H2O!

besides ..stepping the rear out, and going round curves is a blast.

That's because NASCAR drivers are whimps. They also don't do right turns well, hence the Watkins Glen race, stupid cager races...air more GP and WSBK Speed...I mean, NASCAR Channel! P.S. They should air the qualifying sessions, that's where the real fun is, lol.

yah, but they don't deal with the normal road conditions on streets as much - you know - bumps, ruts, oil spill, sand, gravel, tar strips.... I'd like to learn how my bike handles in the rain, but I also don't have a factory team funding for wrecks either!
-
but the nascar - remember they don't have precision f/r braking control and their mass is so high if they lose it a little in the corner they can't recover...
