Be smooth, brake earlier than usual, avoid puddles and slippery serfices i.e. man holes and tar snakes, accelerate slower, don't follow cars or other bikes too close, and try and keep your visor fog free.( i leave my cracked just a little.

I wear my smoked visor all the time, never change it. I don't have a problem riding with it at night, or during rain. It's as dark as they come too. You definitely don't want to ride with the visor open during the rain. Those drops will sting your face.

I ride my bike everyday here in Orlando, and it rains almost everyday. I wear a 1-pc. rainsuit, and ride a little more carefully than I would normally.

Watch out for thiose white lines on the road. It's really slippery when its wet.
Not just the white lines...any painted surfaces on the road. You would also want to ride on the side of the lane and not the middle. When it's dry it doesn't matter, but wet is a different stroy with the oil....

Basically what everyone else said, just take it easy

-Accelerate slower
-Brake softer
-Avoid Slippery surfaces (Paint lines, sewer caps, etc.)
-Use more rear brake, do not slam front brake
-Slower in turns
-Make sure your tires are warm
-Try to stay dry

I try to ride in the tire tracks of the car in front of me.

plastic bags over your socks if u r traveling long distance

without waterproof boots.Break EARLY.Keep your distance from the a-holes

in s.u.v.s who like to speed in the rain.
