One of the dangers motorcycle enthusiasts face when riding in the rain is hydroplaning—when your tires skid across a wet surface. Tires are made to scatter water, but sometimes you run into more water than the tires can scatter. Then water pressure in the front of the wheel forces water under the tire so that a thin film of water separates the tire from the surface of the road and the tire loses traction. The rider loses control of steering and speed.
Any rain (or other water on the roadway) can cause hydroplaning. However, the first few minutes of a light rain are especially hazardous. This is because the rain mixes with any oil on the road surface. Any vehicle going over 35 miles an hour can hydroplane in such conditions.
