Default Recommend me.... The right clothing for the AE

Well, we've not had one of these for a while..

Question is about the AR. Do I wear leathers and take my rain suit which will be a pain in the **** if I get caught in the rain

OR do I just wear my textiles????? and be warm and dry for definate all the time. Bear in mind I'm one of those who is travelling about 200 miles just to get there.

Answers on a postcard...

Are these the same textiles that left you with a wet middle?

Textiles. I'd never wear leathers for that sort of distance. Even if you were going to do the Nurburgring/a track day at the other end, you could wear textiles and take the leathers rolled up in a tailpack.

Shorts and a t shirt mate.

Id go for leather throusers and textile jacket. Then if its showery you can forgo having to stop to put your waterproof trousers on, and if it does get warm, you wont sweat your nads off in textiles.

I bought the matching jacket so they zip together now, all around, not just a few inches at the back
