I haven’t driven my dirtbike in a very long time, and I almost never drove it in the rain or on wet roads. But sometimes you get caught in the weather, and highway speed become extremely dangerous.

We all know that more megapixels doesn’t mean a better camera. If that’s the case, what does make a better camera? This video from tech reviewer MKBHD gives you an idea of what to look for.
