Riding in the rain

I'm a new rider, and I live in Seattle, WA. Rainy days are something I will have to deal with very soon. Anyone have any tips on precautions I should take riding in the rain?

Try getting yourself all season tires. All-season tires are designed to provide traction in a wide variety of weather conditions. They have a less aggressive, flatter tread design which enables the tires be more effective. Check for new options at online tire stores such as http://4wheelonline.com/motorcycle/P...e_Tires.169577 for variety of all-season tires available.

rain riding

easy on the front brakes.... stay out of the center where cars drip oil. If you can ride a wheelie in the rain that doesn't mean you will have traction in the turns Be careful and don't not ride!
