Essential Riding Gear: Rain Suits

Share

The ride almost always starts of sunny and warm, but occasionally on a twisty upstate road after a few hours of peg dragging, the clouds above turn dark and the pleasant blast through the countryside becomes a battle with Mother Nature.

We’ve all heard the saying, If you don’t ride in the rain, you don’t ride! Well, I might ride in the rain, but I’m damn sure gonna pull over and suit up properly.

I’ve been caught in the rain without gear, and it sucks! Soaked to the bone in minutes, and let’s face it, the ride’s no longer fun when this happens. That’s why it’s always good form to check the weather and have a quality rain suit with you if even there’s a slight chance of rain. Any overnight or weekend run should always include provisions for weather.

Sure, sure, if you don’t ride in the rain, you don’t really ride. But seriously, you can be smart and comfortable while cruising through the weather. Here are five solid rain suit recommendations that will keep you dry and dragging pegs even if the weather turns foul.
