Today I went rode out to school however during the day it started raining and I was forced to ride back in the rain. I was wearing my leather jacket and I know you're not suppose to expose leather to water. Is there anything I need to do to my jacket now that it's wet?

Let it dry out in a cool dry place out of the sun. If you dry it out too quickly it will shrink. Otherwise, you just got your first free jacket cleaning. It'll be nice and spotless now, and most likely will feel more broken in and molded to your body.

I hang mine in my basement by the dehumidifier when it gets wet. 12-24 hours later it's good to go. I have the humidity set at like %60 or something.

NO leather is supposed to get wet guys.

But chief is right. It will be fine. I just hang mine up and let it dry. It will loosen up a bit and be more supple. It's a moto jacket...you WILL get caught in the rain from time to time.
