Rain is one of the worse things I try to avoid while living in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). I normally time my visits to my gym to avoid the rain which predictively tends to fall between 11 am and 1 pm. Most of the time, during the rainy season, I am lucky. Other times, I am not.
On this day, I was riding home from District 7 to District 4 when the rain hit. Since I was not that far from home, I decided not to put on my rain jacket. I got really soaked obviously but the ride in rain can be fun when there are not a lot of motorbikes on the street.
One big negative of rain is that I am forced to wash my bike within a couple days to remove the mud followed by cleaning and lubing the chain.
