10 Tips for Riding in the Rain

  1.  Make a conscious effort to adjust your speed and following distance as your bike needs more distance to stop on wet roads.
  2. Remember that the build-up of fog on the insides of car windows dramatically reduces the drivers’ vision, as do water  droplets on the side windows. When riding next to a car, bear in mind that this effectively increases the size of the   driver’s blind spot.
  3. Check that you have sufficient tread on your tyres to minimize the chances of your bike’s wheels aquaplaning.    Although the South African legal limit is a minimum of 1mm of tyre tread, anything below 3 mm can greatly increase  the risk of aquaplaning.
  4. Where possible, avoid riding through puddles of water – when the road is wet, it is almost impossible to tell if the  puddle is hiding a pothole.
  5. If you hit a large patch of water, do not try to brake or swerve suddenly. Stay calm, keep your throttle open and concentrate on steering your bike. If you have to turn, do so as gently as possible.
  6. Avoid abrupt acceleration, braking and steering movements. Sudden stops and turns may result in skidding.
  7. Be wary painted road markings, metal grids and oily patches on the road – these tend to become extremely slippery in  the wet.
  8. Cloudy and rainy weather makes for poor visibility, so take extra care when passing other vehicles. Spray from other  vehicles also reduces visibility considerably.
  9. Whenever possible, wear a rain suit in wet weather – being wet, cold and miserable makes it harder to fully  concentrate on riding in already challenging conditions.
  10. If you ride into a shower and stop to either don your rain suit or wait out the rain, make sure you do so in a safe place.  Pull as far off the road as possible and turn on your hazard lights (or leave your lights on if your bike doesn’t have  hazard lights) to ensure that your bike visible to the other traffic.
