MMP 04: What to expect during your first ride in the rain with 9 ways to master it [Podcast]


Motorcycle Mentor PodcastIn this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I share what you should expect during your first motorcycle ride in the rain. I also share 9 tips that will help you ride in the rain like a pro.

My first ride in the rain was a surprise. The weatherman said there almost no chance of rain, so I rode to work. But it poured on my 15 mile commute home. People were snickering all around me. I was wet and cold, but somehow I managed to keep a grin on my face. You can read all about that memorable ride in the article BikeBandit.com published (listed below).

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • 5 things you can expect when riding in the rain for the first time.
  • Why riding in the rain can be one of the most memorable experiences you can have on two wheels.
  • What riding in the rain and camping have in common.
  • 9 tips that will help you master riding in the rain.
  • Why my motorcycle mentor wanted me to plan my first ride in the rain.

    Good points David. I would also suggest watching out for those slippery manhole covers in wet weather.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

      As I listened to , things you can expect when riding in the rain for the first time. I had to smile! As a long time rider, that lives in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon)I frequently ride on rainy days, as I did today. I enjoyed the podcast, and your suggestions on how to control the ride. Great job
