By my assessment, the first time I rode in rain was a little unsettling. I rode really slow.

The big change for me happened though when I got caught in this storm during tornado watch on my way to Austin. The rain was coming down so hard I could hardly see anything but the white stripe on the road, cars were splashing water and I was scared that if I went too slow, someone would rear end me - so I just kinda found a zen like place and ... I got used to the feeling of hydroplaning constantly, and before long I was jamming down the road... , even speeding, it became less scary, and more fun.

So ultimately I think people should ride in the rain, just experience it more often, so you get used to it, and then it's not a big deal anymore.
