Riding here in the "wet" part of NW Washington State, I have a set of well made over pants and Jacket (First Gear) that I wear at least twice per week. Even during the Spring & cooler summer, I usually wear the over pants with my leather jacket unless it is over say 50 degrees or so.

But I always have a set of the Frogg Toggs with me in my saddle bag. Usually don't need em if caught in typical rain as my leather jacket repels water very well and is warm. HOWEVER, if caught in a down pour since I usually ride through I put the Frogg Toggs jacket over my leather.

To make it a shorter answer, I use my wet gear all the time and carry the F.T.'s if it is too warm for the heavy stuff.

Hope this gives you a decent enough answer.

One thing I forgot to say about having your rain gear is that if it get's unexpectedly cold, you have at least a wind break against the cold at all times.

If you buy froggToggs dom't the cheapie hunters suit get the nicer a few bucks more RoadToad rain suit for motorcycle tiders and buy the optional heat sheild for the leg closest to your pipes . i always have it in my FLHRC bags . It comes in handy for some extra cold weather protection in a pinch .

I have the desert dawgs rain and wind gators for the crash bars . there awsome leave them on most of the time till it gets over 90f.

Thanks for the tips and the suggestions.. I think I'd be a lot more comfortable if I'd get some good gear and use it rather than just trying to ride through it. I know this sounds dumb but that rain gear would have kept me from freezin my @ss off a few times. My leather jacket is pretty good but when your feet get cold coming off the highway and ya realize your gonna need em but ya can't move em.... thats a problem.
