First topic message reminder :

Not wanting to hijack the "Do you scoot in the rain?" thread, but on a related subject, maybe it's time to have a rain gear discussion.

Now if you are a Chicken Little and run home at the first hint of rain then this discussion probably isn't for you.

So for those of use who do ride in the rain, what do you wear...what rain gear do you feel in the best? Given the legendary dismal weather in the UK it will be good to have the input of our fellow rider from there.

What kind of foul weather gear are you all wearing?

We have carried a 3/4 rain cover(in a pouch) attached to the Givi platform on the back of our S/W for years but never thought about covering the wing when we were in Monument valley in Utah. What a mistake,red rock dust in everything including the battery box. Howard NWSSC

5.  For my AA I have the elective credits to declare it in both Theatre and Psychology.
But you can only get one AA. Otherwise I'd have 6 degrees.

In the American college system, 12 credits or less is considered part time.
18 credits is considered a full course load in a given 16 week semester.

I set the state (and I believe the national) record with 46 credits in 1 16 week semester.
6 days and nights of classes per week on 3 different campuses.
During the spring/summer semesters (6 week or 12 week courses) I was able to get in 29 credits. (another record).

69 Credits are required for an AA or AS degree. I have I think a couple hundred+.
Its been awhile since I've been in school.

In the first 3 degrees + theatre, many of the required courses were elective courses on the other degrees, so I worked the system.

By choosing to be self-guided, I avoided the guidance counselor system. Staff didn't figure out what I was doing until 10 weeks into the 16 week semester.  By the time they did, I had a track record for doing well in all my courses, so they allowed me to continue.  After that, they had their computer program rewritten to flag for review anyone taking more than 21 credits.

But......We're getting off topic. Back to raingear recommendations please.
So are you a taxi driver or are you in the fast food industry  Razz ?

What exactly has this got to do with rain gear? If you're going off topic I'll play along too. I've had a couple of scooters including my Silver Wing covered in bright yellow pollen dust blowing about in areas where there are many large fields of Rape, or Canola as I think you call it in the US. It's especially bad in Northern Germany in the Spring and it coats everything. I'm sure there are areas of the UK where it's a problem too.

It's a nuisance but it's easy enough to wash off with a sponge and a couple of buckets of cold water as I'm sure that red dust will too, I was the red rock states of Arizona and Utah last year and there was much less red dust about than the yellow pollen in the places I mentioned.  Smile

I have Tour Master waterproof mesh gloves and boots, and they seem to work well
As a bonus, they actually fit my wide feet and big hands (very rare for moto gear) the gloves might have lost a bit of effectiveness from being burned on the exhaust of my S40, and the right boot might be less waterproof after the lowside on RR335 (or was it 337? I think we rode the 'sisters backerds)
I had a set of Frogg togs, too, which worked well until the pants got melted my my exhaust pipe on the S40 (i think I see a pattern here)
my First gear mesh jacket is fairly watertight, too, when the liner is in, aside from the melted spot on one arm from the exhaust on my S40 (pattern seems real)
I may need armor plated riding gear Laughing
I still have the Frogg toggs jacket (it hasn't met my exhaust pipe yet)

Meldrew will be needing his deep-sea  raingear as many parts  of his current city are flooded as are many parts of his previous home in Cumbria, I hope you are coping and are safe Meldrew.
