I couldnt agree more that rain is a killer when you are going anything over about 30mph. I've had rain bruises.
I got caught last year with my boy in a thunderstorm in the middle of Iowa...all farmland, no overpasses,,no places to even Get off the freeway..we found an old barn after riding in sideways rain, winds of +45mph and lightning all over...and we had to wait it out in that old red wooden barn for 2 hours. Worst time ever. I hate rain boy or not with me...and he's the 'wussy' in the relationship when it comes to rain riding.
