First, for motorcycling in rain, nothing stops water better than purpose-designed rain gear. I have still never found waterproof gloves so when it's raining and I'm riding I put on rubber overgloves ($3 from Aerostich) which work great. I have a pair of Gore-Tex riding boots that have never leaked in 5+ years including some major frog stranglers.
Second, as to the OP's question, I have found that CampDry does a good job of making textile riding apparel water resistant. It's the same stuff I spray on a tent to make water bead up and run off instead of seep through. Will it turn your textile jacket into a purpose-designed rain jacket? Nope, but it'll help. How often do I use it? Well, after I find myself in a hard rain, I'll wait until the apparel dries and reapply the spray before riding again when I may get wet.
