Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Owners Manual: Be extra safety-conscious on bad weather days

Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Owners Manual / The sport of motorcycling / Be extra safety-conscious on bad weather days

Riding on bad weather days, especially wet ones, requires extra caution. Braking distances increase on a rainy day. Stay off the painted surface marks, manhole covers, and greasy-appearing areas, as they can be especially slippery. Use extra caution at railway crossings and on metal gratings and bridges. When it starts to rain, any oil or grease on the road rises to the surface of the water. Pull over and wait a few minutes until this oil film is washed away before riding.

Whenever in doubt about road conditions, slow down!
