Most slippery period when it rains

  1. Hi,

    just some information I recieved from some one and I thought I'd like to share with some of you guys.

    The most slipery period when it rains is the first 15 minutes, this is because its when the oil left by cars and other vehicle spreads as the water makes contact with it.

    Therefor the slipery area surface will spread and be greater, so avoid riding in the rain or if u can't at least the first 15 minutes.
  2. Wow, I'd never have known that.

    Regards, Andrew.
