The worse the weather, the slower you go. I was exiting an expressway just after a rain in my car and behind me was an elderly man on a new cruiser. The exit ramp veered to the right and instead of bleeding off some speed before he entered the ramp he decided to downshift on the ramp while on the curve. Needless to say his rear wheel kicked out from behind him and down he went. i stopped to help him up and he still had the look of surprise on his face. Ya cant downshift on a turn in the rain. YA GOTTA THINK ABOUT THINGS BEFORE YOU GET THERE. Thats a good motto to ride by even in dry weather.
