    Sometimes and onlytimes in and about the late '70's, its the newspaper.

    The Alpinestar Valparaiso Drystar gloves seemed like they were doing the trick until last Sunday week and that storm. After 2 hours they were soaked through and took a few days to dry out.

    Next attempt...

    When I commuted daily, rain/hail/shine, my wet weather gear was

    Dririder thunderwear top, fitted over my leather jacket
    Dririder thunderwear pants, fitted over my jeans
    Sidi boots, just standard sidi boots. No vents in them.
    Dririder gloves, can't remember the specific model were a winter model
    Fog off
    Shoei helmet

    I was always warm and the rain never made it thru. I rate the above dririder gear highly, I went with that option as I wanted to retain use of my leather jacket. Packs up easily if the weather clears for the ride home.

    Why do you think it's called Dririder? It's because your only supposed to wear it in the Dri! I mean, Dry!

    I use a waxed cotton jacket and rubberised pants, tends to keep the water out. Pants are large enough to go over your boots and jeans easily and quickly plus they wont rip.

    Did have those one piece suits, apart from being a contortionist to get it on, it used to leak at the seams leading to a wet crotch, did use seam sealer but it still was a hassle

    I just fitted a clear Pinlock lens to my Arai XD4 helmet. I had never heard of them until recently. It works really well! If you get one, watch the video about fitment.

    A bit of advice re zips catching material in them....put your finger under the zip slider and use your thumb to grasp it sliding your finger along as the zip closes.

    I got those ski pants from aldi, they are warm and water resistant and god a +size rain hoodie, and just put it on over the MC jacket. ANd the pants are also XL so I can wear normal stuff underneath. Works well.

    I found the lining inside the Nelson Rigg gear made it a million times easier to get it on over your normal jacket than the DriRider ones which wanted to just stick to everything.
