Since it's starting to get a bit chilly here (hah! 50 degrees!) I've been thinking of getting a few extra pieces to keep the cold out for longer trips.
Basically what kills me is the wind, there's not much of a windscreen on my 500, and I did 100 miles in the dark last night in a full tuck to keep it from freezing my jimmy off. (btw, whole new respect for motorcycle racers, getting off the bike after being tucked in for so long... I hurt muscles I didn't even know I had...) I have mesh pants and a mesh jacket with a liner, but even with the liner in the jacket and jeans underneath the pants the wind is still pretty... invigorating, so here's my thought. Would a rain suit be good for keeping the wind off of me? There seem to be some really nice pants + jacket sets from First Gear in the $100 range, and then I'd be all set in case it starts to rain on me too. I figure I'll pick up a couple no brainer items too, like a balaclava and a pair of glove liners.
So, anyone have any thoughts/experience about using a rainsuit to keep the wind and the cold out?
