I am doing a 4,000 mile trip this August, one of the stops being Sturgis. I need to buy a good quality rain suit that is easily packable, not too hot and good quality. Any recommendations?

There are so many different types out there...I'd just make sure that it is made out of gortex.

I use a FrogToggs. It works well doesn't cost much. Hates exhaust pipes.

From what I have been told by long distance touring people www.motoport.com has some good gear.

wkohn,

I treat my Frogg Toggs rain pants right leg to a piece from one of those gray ironing board covers. Just cut it to fit and glue it on with some kind of fabric glue my wife had. Works like a champ to prevent burned holes.

HD makes about 3 two-piece models. The older models have boot covers built into the pants, but if your boot doesn't fit, you have to cut it off. Get the spearate H-D gators.

Cortech has a one-piece reasonably priced. My wife uses this one and likes it.

I have a Triumph one-piece. It's easy to get into and very water and wind proof. It has 2 zippers that zip from chest to ankles. It lacks access to any inside pockets and stirrups.

Some swear by Aerostich Darien suits. They are all-weather capable, but some say they are not cool enough above 75 deg.

If I had it to do over, I'd get a 2-piece so I could get into an inside pocket easier and be able to get my electric liner wire out to plug it in.
