The bike wont have any problems with rain. I actually like riding in the rain. Just remember to be smooth.

I've had problems with my bike melting in the rain! :shock: It affects a bike the same as a car, so you should be fine, just a little wet.

Wet weather riding can do great things for your confidence, it's amazing how much grip there is in the right conditions. I learnt this on an advanced course in foul UK summer conditions. And re learnt it 48 hours ago on a 45 mile swim home after a summer blast out. Just as much fun on the way back in, in the wet.

I've ridden in the rain once... just control your throttle and braking, and if the rain is just starting, watch out, it can get slick!

I rode in the rain on Saturday here in Washington. Did the Indy Valley, which is all country road w/ lots of twisties! Would have been a lot better if the rain didn't move in half way through the ride. :(

Rains cool, its the best way to learn to do burnouts. (with minimal tire wear) Honestly though like westhonda.... said just be smooth.

I don't mind riding in the rain, I just take it easy after it just starts raining b/c it pulls all the oil and nastyness onto the road making it very slick. After it's been raining a few minutes all that stuff watches off. Like mtc said just be smooth with your throttle and riding.

Really the only thing I don't like is the 8 hours of work in wet pants due to the unexpected rain on the way to work :roll:
