Riding Motorcycles In The Rain.

When I first started riding motorcycles, I was a fair-weather rider.  At the first sign of a rain, I would pull over, wait for the rain to subside, and then head home.  And, if a ride was scheduled with friends, it would be cancelled at the first sight of darkening clouds.

ridinginraininNHToday, my opportunities to ride have decreased as my work and family commitments have increased.  As a result, I am less likely to cancel a ride due to rainy weather.  In fact, I find that being prepared for rain makes riding in the rain a whole lot less stressful and, at times, even enjoyable.  Now, a veteran rain rider (if you have ever attended Bike week in NH you know what I’m talking about), I pass along a few tips that I have discovered.  To be sure, I am no expert on the subject of riding a motorcycle in the rain.  The pros have much more to say on the subject.  I pass along my own observations as a veteran NH motorcycle rider who has spent much time riding in the rain and as a motorcycle accident attorney that has represented many clients involved in accidents.  Ride safely!
