Riding your motorcycle in bad weather ( part three )

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, November 27, 2016 Under: Motorcycle Riding Skills
Riding on wet roads

Wet roads reduce tyre grip. Give yourself plenty of time and room for slowing down and stopping. Keep well back from other vehicles. On a wet road, you should allow at least double the braking distance for a dry road.



After a spell of dry weather, rain on the road can make the surface even more slippery. Take extra care, especially when cornering. Be aware that different road surfaces might affect the grip of your tyres.

Brakes

As well as reducing tyre grip water can also reduce the effectiveness of your brakes. You should allow for this and keep your speed down. A wet road means - less efficient braking - a longer distance to stop - a greater risk of skidding. If the surface is good but wet, you should - aim to brake when the motorcycle is in its most stable position, that is, upright and moving straight ahead. Apply the front brake slightly before the rear. Spread the braking effort evenly between the front and rear brakes.



Motorcyclists need to be aware of slippery surfaces caused by rain on - metal drain covers - leaves - muddy roads - fuel spillages. This may appear as a rainbow coloured film on the road surface - painted road markings. These surfaces need extra care when cornering or braking.
