Luckily for you, the Rukka stuff seems to last forever, it will probably have been totally redesigned by the time she needs a new jacket!

Turning into a spectator sport firm... :icon_lol: because when my other half needs a new Rukka god knows what she is going today as Tim said all current have elasticated cuffs around the wrists great on a January’s night but at 30c as much use as a hole in the head the current Rukka’s ain’t particularly vented anyway.

Like Chris I also have an emergency Dainese over suit, but havent needed it since I went Rukka 3 years ago,  not a drop has got in. Mine still has the Gore Lockout zip which again as Hockley says has been known to give trouble but touch wood mine is still good. Dries quick too. I hear that Dane stuff is about 95% as good as Rukka for 65% of the price.

The main difference between Rukka and KLim is ventilation. If you go Southern Europe a lot in the summer dont buy Rukka, you'll cook. Can get too much for me in the UK some days

My Rukka jacket is about 7 years old and has covered at least 150kmiles. It has never leaked. Have had the Gorelockout replaced with s ruberised zip and had it reproofed once. Cant remember which one it is but it is Goretex Pro which means the Goretex is part of the shell snd not a zip in liner. Cost around £800 but you get what you pay for.

As far as trousers go I use Alpinestars Drystar, seem to stay waterproof for about 2 years each time, again the drystar membrane is part of the shell not the liner.

Boots, Sidi Adventure, waterproof for first couple of years, damp feet now whatever i do so something new is on the horizon.

I previously tried Oxford overtrousers and also found yhem to be useless

Wife uses Rukka and I use Klim but our insurance policy comes in the shape of a 2 piece unlined Dainese jacket and trousers.

I wasn't sure about the white but when I went to see the bike loved it. The photos don't do it justice.

Chris I am like you and would have run my 955 forever if I could have, it did everything I wanted and was pretty reliable. I wont be saying goodbye to 955s either as I am keeping my first orange one, have a replacement engine in the garage so it will be a bit of a project for me when I ever have time!.

Have done a couple of hundred miles on the Sport now and it already feels like another long termer to me but will also be watching with interest what Triumph come out with next.

When folks walk into my garage with 6 bikes the first question is always the same if I could only keep one which would it be and it’s very easy to answer my 955 what you have bought is the end game of such and I know Tim’s went very well.

I’m certainly in no rush for another bike but hope what Triumph are learning from Moto2 we will see a big bore version of the 765 in the future and in a Tiger/Multistrada guise count me in.
