I would say the biggest annoyance to riding in the rain for me is keeping my visor clean. The rain itself isn't bad and just rolled off. It's all the mist/spray from other vehicles that just sticks to the visor, turning your field of vision into bathroon glass. Just don't panic, and as Smitty says, keep something handy to wipe off/clean with. Otherwise, the advice above is all good.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
