But we all do it because we would rather be on a motorcycle experiencing the elements than being stuck in a cage. There are moments that deffinately make me laugh when rain riding....the classic look of a car full of people looking at me thinking that i'm crazy, lol. Little do they know i could be having the time of my life! Rain riding will definately sharpen your riding skills and make you an all around better rider. When wearing the propper gear it can be a most enjoyable experience. Dont shy away from inclement weather, embace it and have a little fun.
Yep, as in the norwegian saying "it ain't bad weather but poor choice of clothing".
When riding in precipitation I feel as the whole universe has shrunk to a bubble with me in its center. Tiny me, one versus all. The life, true world. Sure, that feels good. Likely unsafe, that too.
