Does anyone else experiment with tire pressure for wet conditions?

On a bicycle with narrow road tires....going down from 100psi to 80psi or so makes a big difference for traction on wet pavement.

On a motorcycle, if you drop 5-7 psi you'll have a slightly larger contact patch. I don't really worry about overheating the tire since it's generally colder weather when the roads are wet.
