Riding a motorcycle is hard enough as it is because

Rain

One of the more common types of weather conditions that you might have to face when riding your motorcycle is rain, which can make your experience much less enjoyable. One thing that you should know about riding when it is raining is the fact that you have much less traction when you are riding on roadways that are covered with water. First of all you have a limited number of tires to make contact with the road. Second, the vehicle you are riding weighs much less than the average car or truck, so there is less pressure on the tires to make contact with the road.

If you want to remain safe while riding your motorcycle in the rain, there are a few things that you should do. First of all, you should reduce your speed. This will give you more traction because your tires will be able to make more contact with the road. Second, you should try and avoid standing water on roadways as much as possible. Standing water can cause hydroplaning which can cause you to lose control of your motorcycle. Hydroplaning occurs when you combine too much speed with a flat water covered surface. Your tires essentially slide across the roadway and you can lose all traction. Reducing your speed is an effective way to eliminate the risk of hydroplaning.

Wind

Wind is another adverse riding condition that you might face from time to time. If you want to successfully steer your way through high winds, one thing you can do is lean as well as steer slightly towards the direction from which the winds are coming. This will help counter balance your motorcycle with the force of the blowing winds. It is also a good idea to reduce your speed as well during high wind riding situations.

Hail

One thing you don't want to do is ride when it is hailing. For one, if the hail has any size to it, it's not going to feel good when it hits you. Second, hail can create slippery road conditions on which you can lose control of your motorcycle and crash. If at all possible, try and avoid driving in conditions where hail is present. If you can avoid it, decrease your speed and take your time getting where you need to go.

Snow and Ice

Perhaps the most dangerous riding conditions include those experienced when snow and ice are present. It's just not a good idea at all to ride your motorcycle in these types of conditions. Keeping your motorcycle upright is challenging enough. Doing so when you have absolutely no traction whatsoever is next to impossible. Try and avoid riding on snow or ice covered roads at all costs.
