7: Windchill Index
Windchill has a huge effect on motorcyclists. A twenty minute ride at 0 degrees in the city at 40 km/hr would actually feel like -7 degrees to a rider. If he or she were taking that same commute at a highway speed it would feel like -11 degrees. Windchill Index allows you to quickly see what the temperature would feel like based on wind speeds and your own riding speed, so you can decide if you’re properly suited for your ride.
6: Rain Alert
Rain, the rider’s regular foe. As the app’s title might suggest Rain Alarm is a simple yet elegant tool designed to help you prepare for precipitation. By using the weather service radar information of whatever country you happen to riding in (check country coverage prior to purchasing) the app lets you know how much rain is on the way and when you can expect it.
The alarms can be personalised too, so if you don’t mind a little dampness you can have the app ignore the rain until there’s something serious on the way. It’s all up to you.
Forget about the weather, on to #5!
