Riding in the Rain
Here in Arizona, riding in the rain can change the terrain pretty drastically. The normally dry wash beds become raging streams. If you're from the desert this is the perfect time to get out and play in the mud! Done safely, your adventure should be full of smiles and giggles.To ensure a fantastic time I'd like to provide a couple tips.
Prepare for maximum wetness
Wear a helmet and goggles to prevent the rain from pelting you in the face
Layer up from head to toe
bring extra clothes for the ride home
Bag all snacks in a waterproof container
Wear gloves because wet hands make for a cold body
Never cross water taller than the bottom of your machine
Wait for the water level to lower by placing a stick in the ground and wait for it to recede
Enjoy the wet smells of the desert!
