ahhh man that sounds like my first rain experience. i had a little puddle of water between the tank and my nuts,....it was great.

not to mention that it was thundering and lighting ALOT that was a little unsettling. it took me 2 hours to go 30 miles......

Well there is the reason you "think" the stock OEM tires work good in the rain,,, Get some Metzelers or ,,, god forbid a set of E3 Dunlops(even they are better than stock),,,

At least you will be able to ride faster in the rain without loss of grip,,,

I'm not sure how dirty the rain is in VA but here in Arizona the monsoon rain cost me almost 3 hours of cleaning the other week. I hate the rain on bikes. 300 + days of sunshine in AZ.
