    I have a fireman's yellow rain jacket I love, need to find the matching pants.
    Everybody I know who has them swears by them.

    Besides, you can't even spell Frogg Toggs.

    From what I have been told he was riding recklessly, my information is second hand though. I have no idea what gear he was wearing or anything else. I am going to try to go see him in the next day or two.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    An excellent source of rainwear is your closest work clothing store. I wear a Helly Hansen high viz neon green rainwear bib that matches my high viz neon green Olympia AST. This combination keeps me dry and warm in wind-driven Seattle rain.

    And the snow. Never trust the weatherman. I delivered my Suzuki to its new owner in a terrible storm. But I do have some standards. For instance, I won't ride if it's below 22 degrees out.

    There are only five months of the year in which it is not raining in Seattle. Or to be accurate, I should say not raining as much.

    All this motorcycle talk has reminded me of the fun I had back in my courier days, anyone in Canada got a CB250RS for sale?

    Au contraire. I ride in the rain often. My other rain gear is a $400 Aerostich Darien Light Gore Tex jacket. I prefer the Frogg Toggs.

    My everyday commuting gear is a Rev'It textile jacket and Dainese D-dry pants and they work great in the rain.

    pcad i saw some frogg toggs at Dick's...they really work? The material is very weird ... there is a BMW one piece suit for 125$ at the dealership that looks like it is pretty good quality, is that too much for a once piece rain suit?

    This but without the "BMW Motorad" on it

    advrider seems to like it

    Yes Frogg Toggs work. They are just astonishing. 25 miles in the friggin HAMMERING rain the other day, some of it on the highway @ 80+ mph, I was dry as a bone. Amazing. And yes the material is weird. But the best part is I can carry it on my bike and I don't really need other rain gear, and it slips on over my other clothing. I also have an Aerostich Darien jacket (Gore Tex), but I mainly got that for the Don't Flatten Me Roadsign Yellow color.

    That's not my experience or that of my friends who have been wearing them on long distance Goldwing m/c rides for over a decade. Not in the least. Waterproof, durable. Maybe you had imitation knockoff Toggs. Very possible.

    I have some rain pants that I got on sale at the dealer for about $30, and my textile jacket. Always dry, always warm. I've ridden in rain and snow, and down to less than 20 degrees with wind chill. The only thing I would change would be not wearing lace-up boots in the coldest weather, as they let some air in.

    You need to book a session with Dr. Phil.
    Your obsession with weight would make a good segment.


    Cyclists are too fat to be Jockeys, too......
    Jockey's are too fat to be yard gnomes.....

    Who cares ?


    Now on to more important things....Im planning a road trip on my
