Most of Arizona being a desert, it follows that we don't get a great deal of rain over the course of a year. Seven inches a year is about normal for where I live. I rarely even carry a rain suit unless I'm wandering further afield than my local area. When it does rain here it comes down in buckets for a short period of time, usually in a limited area, and it's hot enough outside that you're blown dry before you get home. The only legacy of getting soaked during the ride is the dried road slime everywhere on you and the bike.
You can see out aways near the horizon in the photo, that I'd be wishing for my rain suit if I was headed that way. Fortunately I wasn't and beat the bad weather home. The bike in the photo was my first Kaw 1600, the Classic model rather than the 1600 Nomad I'm now riding.
