Waterproof overpants are a must for crappy weather. As a side note, I ride rain or shine, and I really don’t like riding in the rain. Sure it looks ‘tough’ because your on a motorcycle in the rain while all the poser riders are taking the car instead, but that is pretty much the only good thing about the rain. Tires slip, you get wet, its harder for people to see you etc…
If I had to choose between it being 100 degrees or it raining, while both are unpleasant I would rather ride in the desert than a tsunami.
