Thanks for all the info on a new cover for my bike, now does anybody have any opinions on a good set of rain gear, I plan to ride to work every day so I'm hoping to stay kinda dry, especially as the weather gets cooler up here in canada.

If you're serious about riding to work every day, invest in a good waterproof/breathable riding suit likean Aerostich Roadcrafter suit.

I recently purchased a Cortech/TourMaster Elite. While not waterproof/breathable, it is a beautifully made item for $80 US. I own several Cortech items and find the quality/price always make their stuff great values.

Here in Australia, "Rivet" is the brand of choice. :waving:I prefer the two piece style as I find getting in and out of a one piece hard. With the two piece and assuming a waterprof jacket - on showery days only the pants are needed.:jumper:

I went cheapo and bought Frog Toggs. They've worked great so far in some pretty heavy rain riding. Don't sweat you either. I had some doubts when I first got them they looked a little flimsy and paperish but they've held up well for riding and a couple fishing trips too. Cost me around $60 with shipping.

Just bought a Nelson Riggs one piece from ebay $29 US looks good and it is well made so I'm hoping it will last It has bib covered zippers and is extra long in the leg also has built in map pocket great deal I think

Details for Item number: 8001087858 ebay #

Bit of a dance to get into over the leather jacket but once on very comfy fit
