I'm planning a 1200 mile trip in June from pa. to fla. Don't want to wear my leather in the summer. Also you know how unexpected rain can fall so I need some suggestions as to what material is best for hot summer days and rainy weather. Something that won't break the bank. Any info would help.

Riding suits

Looking for info on summer, rain proof or resistant riding suits. Riding from Pa. to Fla. in June. Need a suit that won't break the bank. No leather. Any info on what material would work best?

SC/GA/FL in June can be brutal!! Last June a buddy & I rode in 100% humidity (with no rain!) and 103*F in Augusta, GA. And by that time of the yr it rains hard nearly every evening. Whatever you get, make sure it's vented. I would go for the layered style, just like I do now. Non-water resistant garments for riding & separate rain gear when needed.

Trust me, if you've never ridden down here in the sunny, wet south you're in for a completely different riding experience.
