I was walking out the door in my motorcycle gear and my wife asked “Aren’t you going to be hot in that?” And I was, it was 90 degrees and my jacket breathes as well as saran-wrap.
But a safe motorcycle rider knows – ATGATT – what is a rider to do when the temps hit 90 or higher and don’t want to act like a SQUID?
I was talking with friends at work how they deal with summer heat and safety gear. I was pleased that only 1 of about 12 folks in the discussion skipped their jacket. A few skipped the ride, but most had mesh jackets.
I ordered one that was on sale 40% off, but I chose it because it stil has CE armor in shoulders, elbows and back.
“Sedici Marco Mesh Waterproof Jacket” - $140
Anyway I’m just excited to have something lighter than my current, which aside from being heavy duty nylon throughout, was on the cheaper side to begin with.
Take the poll, what’s your approach?
