Nighttime Summer Rain

I like riding in rain, but I love riding in rain on a warm summer night. Not as insane as it sounds, but it definitely expands the element of risk on a motorcycle. Give a bit of time for rain to soak the road, wash away the slippery stuff first, then realize motorcycles donโ€™t melt away in the wet, and tires designed to channel water still grip- even in a lean. Engines keep humming, lights keep lighting, and brakes keep braking on mostly empty roads. The bike may require smoother inputs in less predictable conditions, but wheels keep rolling.
