I loved riding in the rain, mostly because you could flat-track around corners and get the bike all nice and clean while doing it. My rain gear was a yellow slicker, with matching pants and plastic bags duct taped over my boots. Also had bags on my hands, and a full coverage helmet with a vented shield. Since rain is a treat in LA, I made every excuse to commute in it. In fact, it's raining now. Too bad I don't have a bike.

I'll have to look into those. The gloves I have now are total cheapies but they work, they were like $50 including shipping

Check into a fog city shield, I know quite a few that swear by them.

Luckily my windscreen is mid waist so at speed I turn to the right, then to the left and clear the rain (rainex on the shield helps too). Slow speed I use the leather glove index finger method, once damp my gloves work like a chamois. Much better than the finger squeegees and my finger covers the entire screen in one wipe. Dont buy Zook at the IMS, only works on humidifiers in close proximity to your shades. Ive been curious if scuba drops work on shields but in a couple worst case scenarios I did the scuba spit method, which got me home. Since spit works so well I quit buying scuba drops years ago...
