Motorcycles and rainy weather are not always the best combination, especially for inexperienced riders. We get a lot of rain this time of year, including the sudden and unexpected thunderstorm, so it is important to keep a few things in mind to help you stay safe on the road and prevent a motorcycle accident. Here are a few things you should know about rain and motorcycles.
Keep handy at home a waterproof rain suit, gloves, and boots – all meant for riding in the rain. There are a lot of options, so make sure what you choose is comfortable and won’t restrict your movement while on your bike.
Wear your gear if you need to go somewhere and you know there is the chance of rain. Staying dry under the rain gear can aid in comfort and help you keep your mind on the road and your surroundings and not your soaked clothing.
