Rain is no issue with the right gear.
Get some pants, even the yellow rubber ones and a decent jacket, even the yellow rubber one.
Back in the day before all this high tech stuff, we used to buy thin wool gloves and put
cheap dishwashing gloves over them, yup you guessed it, the rubber yellow ones.
Rubber boots are the best footware but you can use plastic bags over your socks and stick em
in the boot...those paper/plastic like fedex envelopes are great for this, grab a stack from
any supply box and your good to go. They also make great insulation on your chest if your
getting windchill through the zippers.
I was a motorcycle courier during the El Nino winters back in the early 90's.
10hrs a day in 40 degrees and raining constant all day long. If you need any
advise on tips and tricks I'm happy to help.
Rain gear doesn't have to be expensive, just drop by the hardware/surplus store and
grab a cheap set of foul weather gear, you'll be very happy you did.

Although motorcycle riding is romantic, motorcycle maintenance is purely classic.
