I have been riding for over 45 years and have a lot of riding in the rain. I had a lowside last year when a car in front of me panic braked and I got on my front brake a little too hard (think antifreeze on the pavement contributed to the accident too). Now, I still flinch every time I brake on wet pavement (I also still limp from the bike slamming down on my left foot and ankle). Being older might be part of why I am the way I am now, when I was younger I used to just shrug things off. I am not sure now if I will ever get to the comfort level I used to have on wet pavement, would love to be wrong about this but I am afraid I am right. I still love to ride, just a little wary on wet pavement. Sometimes you just gotta take your lumps...
