for us Canadians if you watch the CT flyer for rain suits
the flyer usually shows the cheap stuff but when you go in the store the better stuff is on sale as well
I think I paid around 50 or $60 when it was 50% off for mine
Carry it in my saddle bags all the time JIK, no good if its at home

I have a froggy toggs 2 piece rain suit and a pair of rain-off over gloves that I use.

On my Kat I would stuff the jacket up under the tail and jacket in the space by the battery. Sadly the VFR is lacking in under seat storage so I throw it all in my tank bag is the weather looks iffy.

Mine flap in the bicep area, so I went to Dollarama and bought a 2 pack of velcro straps that I cinch down the extra material with. The arms would flap so bad my mirrors were useless lol.
