Ever get caught riding in heavy rain?
A "chance of showers" is one thing. But a downpour, you need good motorcycle rain gear to keep dry, or water will find a way into every opening.
By good waterproof gear, we mean: helmets with faceshield, gaitors, rainsuits, waterproof boots or boot covers. And a ziploc baggie to put your phone in:)
And rain gloves! Wet hands get cold, so you have to keep them dry.
(Of course, if it rains so hard that visibility becomes an issue, safely pull over and find a place to wait for the worst to pass. Call ahead and let folks know you'll be late. Better than not getting there at all).
For those times you get caught riding in rain, here's how to choose the right gloves.
