It’s perfectly okay to ride in light rain. However, you should avoid riding in hard rain whenever possible. While some of the newer models will keep your electronics safe from rain, it’s harder to stop and turn in the wet weather. If you do ride in the rain, just like with any vehicle, you should be extra careful around painted lines, pot holes, sewer or drain grates, railroad crossings, bridges, leaves and those surfaces that tend to be more slippery when wet. If you live in an environment where rain is common, consider fenders to keep the water kicking up from your tires. Use a cover if you leave your bike outdoors. Continual rain may seep into the controller and battery and cause damage.
