The roads are the slickest at the start of rain before the rain as been able to wash off all the surface oil off the road way. When riding in the rain, increase your following distance and stay out of the center of the road especially in intersections. As when driving a car in heavy rain, try and stay in the tracks of the vehicles in front of you. The tires of the vehicle in front of you has already pushed some of the water off the road in that area so there’s less water for your tires to run in. This significantly improves handling.
