    Blopodyfair weather bikers.. just get on the bike and ride it. wet riding promotes smooth riding in braking and acceleration and turning which can obly be a good thing.
    So long as you rein it in and ride within you and the bkes comfort level you will be fine.

    I think all bikers should get out in the wet as it promotes proper use of the brakes, acceleration and cornering in that you have to be smooth.
    well, its good training to gain confidence and experience in all weathers anyway.

    Have an mt-07 and its a tad torquey.
    Mt-09 has modes which is a good plan.

    I don't go out in the rain if I can help it.

    Since I don't commute on it I don't have waterproofs.
    Can't have as much fun around corners and the bike gets filthy in places that are hard to clean.

    ...yep I'm a true fair weather rider :p

    Dont like the wet myself. If I can avoid it I will. I cant see the point of a nice blast if you are conscious and worried about slides.
    even worse is getting caught in the rain and darkness.. that fucking orrible.:(

    My first month was spent in the wet and damp as I learned biker riding and even did the tests in the damp.
    It doesnt faze me too much really but i'd rather avoid it.
    As it hapens, I havent used the new sports bike in the wet or damp but I used the scooter all the time, in all conditions.

    When I started biking it was my sole form of transport. Rain, shine, snow, ice, I had no choice. Fuckin miserable it could be, getting to work cold and wet. Now any hint of rain and the bike stays in the garage. Don't tell anyone but I also have a car, ssshh;)
