Riding in the rain when it's cool out is awesome. Riding in the rain when it's 95F out is not. I might not be getting wet from rain, but my suit is slowly filling up with whatever stew I'm excreting...and I'd rather be rain wet personally.

I find rain almost always drops the air temperature 20 degrees. I have never encountered 95 degree rain. On a recent group ride we ran through some rain at 90mph. I had rain gear but being the gambling man I am I figured we'd get through it and spend enough time at high speed in the sun afterwards to dry me out. Everything went according to plan.

It happens when there are sporadic rain clouds in the area. Just enough to wet you, but not enough to cool the environment.

You are most likely thinking of a fast moving cold front; they dump their water quickly and cool air moves in after it.

My Scorpion has never fogged. Ever.

I've ridden in everything from 25F to 110F...

Cool, what does Scorpion do? I've had the same experience with the Pinlock visors I've used (all on Nolan helmets).

Unicorn piss and caribou glue.

It has some coating on it that HATES windex... don't ask me how I know.

Never clean it with anything other than mild soap and water. Dry with soft paper towels or microfiber.

Clean it wrong one time and it's ruined.
