The worst I ever ran into was near San Francisco (big surprise). A few times I almost couldn't see past the front of the bike! In those cases I would stop if possible, but at the very least I slowed down quite a bit and turned my head from time to time. Every once in a while I'd use my gloves to wipe away the water. Overall it's wasn't too big of a deal, just takes longer to get where you're going. I never tried the rain-x thing though. I got pretty good at being able to tell when there would be fog, and on those days I took the cage. It's not impossible to ride in fog, but it's certainly not much fun, I now I just avoid it if possible.
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
