Lesson – how to ride a motorcycle in the rain or on wet roads.


As requested by some subscribers, tips on how to ride on wet roads. Other things to be aware of are road glare from the wet, visor steaming up and heavy rain visibility problems. A goldwing rider has mentioned putting rear brake on 1st in wet to help front tyre remove water. Problem with this is when the front is then used it proportionately decreases the load on the rear tyre risking a rear skid if not released. Always start gently with the front and allow it to disperse the water followed soon by the rear. Filmed with the vio pov hd on exposure -1 as I’ve found it over exposes a lot on “0”
