in case of heavy rain, I prefer using overgloves like these ones

many brands produce them.

Currently I'm using Dainese gore-tex boots and no water comes in
In urban communting I prefer using waterproof sneakers, which are pretty good for slight rain, but I have replacement shoes in office. Also in this case there are overboots waterproof protections

Rain rain rain, an issue that comes up at every motorcycle meeting.
In my country, which is a little one so I think I also can speak about all the countries around us, we have our share of rain.
In my beginning years of riding motorcycles, when bikes were made from cake and men from iron, we never really cared about rain.
We got wet !

I can remember coming back from the Grand Prix of Franchorchamps (Belgium) 1979, my red leather outfit got soaking wet and it took a week to get it dry again. My grey sweater, I was wearing at that time, was also red. Not so long ago, when it was raining, my hands got black (my gloves were already black)

Nowadays bikes are made from metal and men from cake 😇. Getting wet is now a problem because cake canít stand water 😜

At Hein Gericke I bought a goretex jacket which is still waterproof (after wearing it for more then 10 years) My gloves are also from Hein Gericke and with goretex. They are still waterproof. I even bought a second pair because Hein Gericke stopped. My trousers are from BMW (sale) and my boots too. Both are still waterproof.

It is what you want. You need to buy the proper gear in order to stay dry. Cheap stuff does not work.

To find out if something is really waterproof (gloves), put them on and put your hands in a bucket with water. Make a fist and stretch several times. Put pressure on the gloves and wait .......................... no water, okay ! Wet hands ....... bring them back because they are not waterproof. Boots, find a bigger bucket 😀

Good luck !!!!!!

For rainy days, I use REV’IT! Poseidon GTX Jacket. Its Gortex, which makes it completely waterproof. As I said before, it's rains a lot in Auckland. Our average rainfall is 1,115.5 mm (43.92 in) per year.
