Sunday we were sitting in the back porch at Yankees. We noticed the big dial thermometer said 100* in the shade. I thought it was probably inaccurate. Monday I checked the stats and the high temp Sunday had been 102*

I'm rocking leathers cause that's the way I roll. I'm not wearing the back protector however. For me the helmet is always the hottest gear anyway.

I'm wearing a mesh olympia jacket with a jersey shirt under it, with jeans.

Maybe a little rain will be good, like A/C for a mesh jacket.

Don't forget your tinted visors fellas.

As of this morning "Don" is projected to roll through corpus christi. Houston should not be affected, and Austin definitely not. We should be good for the trip.

FYI

Finally got a call from the GM at Crossland Economy Studios Austin - West. He gave me the impression that a lot of the guests there are on the shady side so it's not the best motel in the chain. I expressed to him that as long as the room is clean, I won't have a problem. We'll see

Here's the current projection (this picture auto-updates so it's current)

map tropprjpath04 ltst 5nhato enus 600x405

Last night I went for a night-ride with my tank bag and hydrapak OVER the jacket. The whole system worked out well but my bag cuts into my seat space where I can't sit too far away from the tank when cornering...I can't really move the bag any further back or it will interfere with the tailight.
