Has the Rain X helped in many situations? As in, does it keep rain/dirt off, or is it just a mild deterrent to sticky water?

Took a 2 hour lunch and went and had the wife take me to Motorcycles Unlimited to grab the bike today. Freshened fork legs felt good, but dang....didn't really want to come back to the office after riding in that amazing weather.

When I started up the bike I could see mist from the headlight, but I was like, meh. It got heavier the closer I got to work and I was soaked.

Ride in yesterday was great. ride home... not so much. Almost to the house and was caught off guard by a dog Too much front brake+crappy reaction time= close up of the pavement, broken clutch lever and a dented clutch cover Less than 1/10 of a mile from the garage.

The forecast for the next 5 days is heavenly: high 60s and low 70s during the day, sunny with a breeze. Expect to see many people riding today.

Which direction were you coming from? I was coming from SW into down town and I thought it felt a lot warmer this morning than the weather app on my phone indicated (45F). Wasn't cold at all, even without overpants or glove liners. Yesterday morning with the fog felt cold as though. Amazing what difference a "little" moisture in the air makes.

For the guys riding in before 6:30, when it's still dark.. What kind of gear do you wear? The days are so nice but the mornings are just too cold for me, but maybe I'm just a huge .

I'm on the road around 4am. Today I wore a Joe Rocket leather/textile jacket. On colder days I wear a Fieldsheer jacket. I commute on a naked bike at 70 mph for 90% of my commute.

Textile jacket w/quilted liner and rainproof overpants to keep the wind off my legs.

I also have a winter riding suit that will make me sweat on cold days if I'm not moving.

Some helmets are warmer than others too.
