In Miami I get caught in the rain often. Just pretend you are riding in slow motion. No sharp changes in momentum - left, right, forward or backward (stopping).
I usually let the bike dry on her own, then wipe her down with an "armor all" cloth. I'm not sure what the exact brand it, but it's one of those little tissue packs that seal up again. One of those will generally clean the whole bike.
Consider waxing your windshield. Mine's kind of small (I look over it) but when I'm riding in the rain, I notice a big difference in the waxed/non-waxed shield. Make sure you get wax and not "cleaner and wax." I think there's a thread on it here.
