I've looked at the pants, and they are sure nice. I am not sure what that would do as far as electrical draw goes though. I decided that I really don't need them for now. I just wear a pair of longjohns underneath my jeans - works well enough when the temperature is in the 20's. Any colder than that, and the snow, salt & sand usually ends my riding anyway.Lapine Rider said:And thank you as well! I'm planning on gloves, liner, and maybe pants.
I have a two-piece Nelson-Rigg rain suit. No insulation of any kind, it's designed to be worn over other clothing. The pieces fold very flat, and I keep them in my trunk at all times.Lapine Rider said:...yesterday I found out that my jacket isn't very waterproof at all by being caught 50 miles from home by a totally unpredicted soaker.
A very _cold_ soaker, I might add. When I got home, I wrung out my shirt...
Anyway, this has caused me to totally re-evaluate my riding gear plans, and I'm not at all sure what I'm going to do. I originally bought the Burgman for long trips, so I _need_ good foul weather gear. On the same token, I also need stuff that won't take up too much space when not in use.
