While I don't not mind riding in the rain I do not like getting caught in the rain. I hate getting wet so if I can get my rain gear on prior to the droplets I'm a happy camper.

As for riding in the rain rule of thumb the darker and shinier the pavement the more slippery it is. The best thing to do other than getting the rain gear on before the rain is have good tires, slow down and do not do anything fast or jerky or keep the death grip on the handlebars.

I've ridden with folks that were 2-up on worn TKC 80's in a torrential downpour that were comfortable riding tight technical twisties faster in the rain than I am in the dry. Like so many things it more the Indian not the arrow.
