Even with my frogg toggs on , after several hours riding in the rain , my crotch and ass get wet .
After the last event , I actually bought a cheap kayak spray skirt , that would wrap around my waist , cover the tank bag , and maybe the camping gear strapped to the pillion seat . Of course , I didn't take it to the leafpeeper tour in Maine , and had 2 days of rain on the way home .
My findings so far : Joe Rocket gear is NOT waterproof . It is not water resistant . It is a sponge . Tourmaster gear is much , much better , but still no match for several hours of riding in the rain . Frogg toggs make my torso absolutely warm and dry , but with 4 hours between gas stops , a puddle forms in my lap , and will eventually soak through .
note : I'm not talking about a light mist , or a 20 minute sprinkle , I'm talking about that huge swath of red and green you see on the radar image , that covers the entire eastern seaboard - home is on the other side of it , and I have to work tomorrow .
Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .
