We have found that if your going to ride over 300 miles be prepared, it will probably rain. Take your Motorcycle rain gear with you.
During all of our Rallies and all our Rides we have found that Rain Gear is a must. Every time we have been to Sturgis, it has Rained, Snowed, Sleeted and even the mist can get thick. They even had to pull out the snow plows one year so we could get back to our campsite. Imagine 100’s of bikers waiting to get back to their site because they left in the morning with sunshine and came back from the ride cold and wet. It happens.
During the Lonestar Rally, Yep it rained. Poured down horrible big drops. Even flooded the campsites with a few inches. So make sure that gear is on the bike rolled up tight so you have it.
