i'll probably ride further to test the rain because got one time rain heavily (and sway sway me havent buy raincoat) so I sped off across the highways (and see a couple of bikers drop down to wear raincoat) and after awhile no more rain and I was... "WAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!!"

We're all trapped in a maze of relationships. Life goes on with or without you.

I swim in the sea of the unconscious. I search for your heart, pursuing my true self.

Will wear rain gear if riding alone, will let pillon wear if only got 1 set :sweat:

But will take public transport if the rain is too much ! ! :giddy:


Will enjoy the 'feeling' of taking public transport (since dunno how long ago)..... so will appreciate the freedom of riding my phantom :cheeky:


Just my personnal opinion :goodluck:


PS: Ride slow and steady when raining :thumb:

hahahhaah you the man!


Whack in rain can be painful man, the arrows.. i mean raindrops.. on the chest. fuuh.

Yup.. Agreed.. The 1st time I ride in the rain, didn't expect the rain drops to be so powerful.. hit my hands, neck and shoulders.. Even with rain coat, the impact can be quite hard even when riding a raincoat..

Since now is raining season, i would like to share few experience with all of you.


1) You might have breakdown during raining and can't seems to get throttle. During raining, please tune your carb so that you would not encounter such problem.


2) Please beware when negotiating bends, especially those with IRC tyres.


3) Roll up your T-shirt / jeans if you do wear rain coat.


4) Always keep on the left and not speed


5) Should your throttle ceased fire, tune your fuel indicator to reserve, wait for a while, throttle a bit then start engine, after which you will need to tune back to non reserve (Optional)


6) Have a hot bath and keep yourself warm after the raining ride or else...MC.


7) WEAR Gloves


8) Try not to ride in between cars as seldom cars will be able to see us .


9) Check your brake distance + Brake Pad(Very Impt).


10) Before setting off in the rain, please warm up your bike or else the cooling will be too much for your engine to take in the rain and hence the cease throttle.


11) Make sure you protect your legs as rain on hot engine will spill over to your legs.

Hi bro,


Are you implying that all IRC tires dont perform well on wet roads?


Just qurious. If it isnt good then I think I'll have to change my tires.
