BMW rain luck ran out

Previous bikes owned hit rain all the time
F650GS has over 9000 miles, K1200RS has over 12000 miles. I never hit any rain until today, drove over 100 miles in major rain fall today
Most of my K1200RS miles are trips to rain country Pacific Northwest and Canada.
Metzler Z6 tires performed perfect in rain

02 BMW K1200RS Staintune many mods. Totaled by 16 year old girl
02 BMW F650GS Staintune many mods.

The rain gods finally had to give it up on ya huh!

Riding in the rain can really make you concentrate, and keep your wits about you; even more than just normal riding conditions..and hey, if you can be a beast rider in the rain, think of what you can do in dry conditions!

If you're going to ride in the rain, do it in style.
