    Thatís is what I use, itís always on sale in stores and works well for a single destination. I soak mine and then put it in a bag in the freezer.
    I just picked up one of those vests and have yet to try it out.

    One thing I learned the hard way a long time ago was getting a really bad sunburn on my old R6 when I went out without my jacket. I eventually discovered my Joe Rocket Reactor 2.0 jacket that I still have to this day. Leather on the contact points and mesh in all the other points. Its still hot when it gets into the 90's here too...

    convert belt for to chain drive and spirits tension device with 240 rear tire/rim for combination. chain runs much cooler than belt and wide rear tire generates wind turbine effect cooling both rider and motorcycle for comfort in heat. engine works easier to rotate chain than belt due to endemic friction characteristics resulting in cooler exhaust ports and header pipe.

    If the weather you ride is really hot you definitely need to install air scoop on the front brake. Overheated brake is the last thing you want to happen on you.

    In hot weather I am afraid my brakes will overheat with normal riding, so I just don't use them at all. I've only been in 10 wrecks, but my brakes are fine!





    Thats a joke BTW^^^. There is no way (on this planet) that a hot ambient temp will overheat your brakes.

    We are clearly talking about the rider over heating and some how Teabag, translates that into my brakes over heating. Is English a second language for you ?
