I ride in all kinds, my dear.
Rain does not phase me. Just get a little wet in the face. I wear all the proper gear:
- Aerostich suit
- Widder electric vest (when it gets really cold out)
- All season Gaerne motorcycle boots
- All season Olympia motorcycle gloves (although I need new ones)
For my street bike, I currently have Dunlop D220's which stick like glue in the rain. They don't hold worth jack on the dry, though.
Yes, since this is only California (weather is more extreme in other parts), I've ridden through drizzle, rain, storm, lightning, strong winds, El Nino, frost.
Does that answer your question?
I started this poll just to see how many riders I can expect to see when the puppies and kitties start falling from the sky. So far, from what I can tell, wet weather phases about half the riders in Northern California. But when wet weather gets WET, it tapers off a WHOLE lot more, and I seem to be the only one.
Hard core, or just plain stupid? Dunno... but I do know that I LOVE TO RIDE.
