Got a chance to check out the Pirelli's grip in rain on Saturday
. We were out for a nice ride and stopped to have lunch. Our waitress said - "Well that rain they were calling for looks like it made it"- Oh, oh. My wife never rode in rain and my experiences are limited. When we left the restaurant it was sprinkling, by time we got close to home it was a monsoon. We had to pull over under a train over-pass until it slowed down. The Riva stuck like glue (as did my ancient Piaggio BV200) and both ran perfectly. It was actually a fun experience. Spent the rest of the afternoon in the garage cleaning them and having a "few" beers. Just another part of the fun of riding/owning scooters!
