It’s still winter in lots of the country and I’m sure many of you look outside before deciding on whether to grab your car keys or bike keys. Ryuichi Kiyonari wants you to know, however, that a little wet riding is just fine.

This video is an oldie, but it’s also a goodie. It’s a qualifying lap from the 2009 World Superbike race at Donington in England. On this particular day, they were experiencing some of that lovely English sunshine, which didn’t stop Kiyonari or his Honda CBR1000RR race bike from riding like a banshee with his ass on fire.
