Riding into rain storm without motorcycle rain gear can instantly turn a great motorcycle ride into a miserable experience. Besides leaving you cold and looking like a drowned rat, riding with a wet shirt and soaked jeans flapping in the wind can cause chaffing and skin irritation. Most motorcycle rain gear can be rolled really compact to store in a backpack or saddlebags. It only takes a short pit stop on the side of the road or at a gas station to slip into rain gear, but those couple of minutes can keep you smiling and riding for miles.
It used to be that when it came to motorcycle rain gear you were stuck looking like the Gordon’s fisherman. That’s not the case anymore and Chaparral Motorsports has a great selection of lightweight, breathable jackets, pants, boots, and women’s rain gear.
