Suit in the Tank bag and that is pretty much for the long and the short of it but I do have room for other odds and ends.

I live in West Texas, so normallly I keep my rain gear at home in my closet!

Seriously, though, I have a Hein Gericke two-piece that I've used for several years. When I go on a multi-day trip and rain is in the forecast, I keep it folder and in one of my side bags (I ride an ST1300 on most trips. My dual-sport stays closer to home). When rain is imminent, I will then place it inside my tank bag, on top of whatever else is in there. That allows me quicker access when I have to pull over and don the thing.

Kreiga

Kreiga US 10 (or 20 if on a longer trip) strapped to the passenger seat of my GSX 650 F. It holds Firstgear 1 piece rain suit, mini jumper cables, micro fleece shirt, & some misc. bits & bobs.

Seriously though.....I have the BMW one piece rainsuit. I have a small bag that almost works like a compression bag for the rain gear. I fold the gear fairly neatly and jam it into the bag...........
Are you referring to the bright yellow bmw onesy ?!?!? Lol. I love that thing but haven't got the nerve to buy it yet.

LOL.......yep and I like it. Works very well. Is easy to get in and out in full gear and goes over my Sidi Adventure Rains easily. Plus you get very high Viz in the rain. My wife was following me in her cage one day heading somewhere and I was in the rain gear, in rain of course, and heavy traffic here in Miami. She was very happy to notice that I was highly visible in the rain and in the mist from the all the vehicles.

I got it for like $125 at a Rallye in 2011.

I have a Roadcrafter and a Rallye 3. They are okay for a road trip . Any offload stuff and the RC is about useless . The Rallye heats up not quite as fast .I have Dakar Pro jersey and Dakar pants . The two piece rain suit goes in a bag right behind me .

Tucked into pushbike frame bags and strapped to my crash bars, top one side, pants the other.

Not only convenient, but it damps out the annoying vibes in the bars.

Broken arms and boredom have me looking onto threads like this.

Rain gear you want handy so you don't get soaked before you get it on. I ride in Southeast Asia where you have monsoon rains that can come in thick and heavy at times. I keep mine in a numberplate bag.



It packs pretty minimal compared to the Cliff bars in there also. Orange is the jacket, brown sac has the pants. Upside of rain gear is they also help in cooler weather doing double duty if the mountains of Lao get cold.



The numberplate keeps it out of the way yet handy. It's the one piece of luggage gear i have not changed in years of offroad/DS travelling.

Pic of where the number plate bag mounts

I keep it in the sidecar trunk, under all the spare parts and tools.

I've got a Willie-n-Max top bag that fits my jessie topbox
as I've added some footman loops. It's almost waterproof
(zipper intrusion) so the rain gear setup including treated
gloves gets wrapped in a large trash bag.
