. . . I used one similar to this for a trip from Los Angeles to Kalispell, MO, a distance of roughly 1,800 miles, during which it rained for 1,500 miles, and stayed nice and dry the whole way . . .
Here is my question: Which boots were you wearing?
I have a water proof textile suit, two rain suits, a helmet, some cheap thinsulate gloves that perform well int the wet, and a full face helmet. I wear heavy leather boots with "waterproofing" oil.
I've been riding in all sorts of weather for 24 years and just tolerated the shortcing of my gear.
As I am getting older, and my financial situation is maturing, I am thinking of getting more dedicated gear. The problem is the Yankee in me (and years of frugal living) have me balling at some of the year prices.
I think k my next purchases may be:
moto boots - do it all, all weather, good for commuting to an office
Gloves - (both my warm and cool weather gloves are over 10 years old).
A helmet - riding with a 5 yr old HJC F12 now. It's a little noisy.
My body would have stayed dry over 1500 miles, but I would have had soggy gloves and cool hands, wet feet, and probably got some seepage around my helmet and neck.
Would love to hear what people are using.
