As far at the visor fogging up... NOTHING beats a Fog City shield! They run about $12-16, and they're worth their weight in gold. It's just a thin plastic oval that adhesive's into the inside of your visor, and it completely stops fogging inside. Completely.

Does it matter which brand of shaving cream? Gel or foam?

I'd recommend reading Sportbiking: The Real World (The Advanced Riders Handbook) by Gary S. Jaehne, the second part of which is dedicated to improving your wet weather riding (style). Before reading this book I hated riding in the rain, now I (sometimes) love it, but always feel relaxed and much safer out there!

Living in the good old UK we are more worried about what to do when it is dry and sunny. Wet weather riding comes naturally to those of us on this side of the pond.



Decent gear is the answer to staying dry, smooth style and leave room for the idiot in the tin box to hit the brakes too hard and start spinning in front of you.

Normally it is wise to ride with the following mindset:

- You're naked

- You're invisible

- They really are out to get you



But in the rain you have to add the following:

- Even if they chance to see your headlight or taillight they can't interpret what it means

- They either aren't aware or don't care about the laws of physics and what they have to do with driving on wet surfaces

- They're just as likely to be talking on their stupid cell phone whether it's raining or not
