One potential problem with your comment... it's called attrition.

Bad/stupid riders that ride everyday... survive by improving or pure dumb luck.
Eventually murphy removes them from the picture...

Carnuba wax and the little vent setting on my shoei keep the fog away at highway speed. At low or stop I crack the visor a thumbwidth open works pretty well until the truck passes you right at a puddle and douses you with water (this morning).

And yes, I am crazy. If you don't believe me just ask my wife. Though I hide it pretty well at work.

I say yes. 610 loop could have been done at a reasonable speed and one could wear more clothing. So both are avoidable.
If you don't have enough gear to stay warm please don't feel wussy just because I said you are. I have never been as cold anywhere else as I have been on a motorcycle in Texas. This coming from a guy who was in Whitehorse Canada when they almost broke the -61 ーF record and grew up skiing and snowboarding. Plus, I have a 1/4 ton of cold weather gear to choose from.
In residency my father would often have to treat motorcyclist for hypothermia when they would jump on the bike for the first 60 ーF days in spring with just a T-shirt on top.

"Remember that even in relatively warm weather, constant exposure to wind when riding may cause hypothermia: a subnormal body temperature. Hypothermia can cause you to lose your ability to concentrate and react to changing traffic conditions. Motorcyclists are especially susceptible to rapid chilling that leads to loss of reflexes, a symptom of hypothermia. The biggest danger of the subnormal body temperature found in hypothermia is the deterioration in the ability to think clearly. Proper riding gear, such as a windproof jacket and insulated layers of clothing, is essential.

On a warm day (65 degrees Fahrenheit), a motorcyclist riding at highway speeds of 45-55 mph experience a chilling effect equivalent to 33 degrees. That is only one degree above freezing. Riders not dressed properly for the chill could become victims of hypothermia."-http://www.mmsp.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=26&Itemi d=45

This is what I rock if it's below 50. I replaced the back armor with a better
peice out of another jacket and the knee armor sucks but it is very warm and
99% dry in thunderstorms.

If it is gets above 70 though you WILL sweat....

I've got to get something like that.

it would depends... if they're riding like the "Riders doing the 610 loop" then yes. The key being not WHEN you ride but HOW you ride.
