Oh yeah! Which leads me to my one piece of advice, after it rains, even if the road is dry, watch out for tunnels! It can still be very wet in the tunnels and the sudden transition between dry and wet can catch you by surprise and potentially ruin your day. I speak from experience, the closest call of my life came from just that happening. I headed into a tunnel at dry road speeds to find a very wet road, I hydroplaned and came very very close to ending up in the oncoming lane. Lesson learned!
