. Kept my speed at an average 85mph. I didn't want to get rear ended going slow. To me, it was pretty fun and I didn't have any problems with traction. But if I know its raining, i won't leave the house. But being caught in the rain is no biggie.[/quote]

"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "

Definitely need some type of rain gear to cover my leathers. My suit must have weight 50+ lbs! from absorbing so much water.

dont mind getting wet, but I do mind getting run into. It seems people dont know how to stop their cars when it's wet outside. I got rear ended 2 times last yr (in my car) while sitting at red lights.
