Well today the weather here in Brisbane is bloody horrible. Very heavy rain, lots of standing water on the roads. And so on. Let’s assume you have a naked style bike for daily use / weekend scratching and that you ride most of the time. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a ‘safer” / more suited bike for atrocious wet weather conditions. Got me thinking – what would be the ideal specifications for a “wet weather bike?” A fairing, obviously, keeps the rider more comfortable which is very important in stressful conditions / where you really need to concentrate. What else? Power plant – Are some better than others e.g. smooth power delivery curve. ? Braking system – ABS ? And so on. And are there any reasonably priced road bikes (esp second hand) that might tick all or most of the boxes? Discuss.
