When April comes, Showers follow

Don't you hate it when you're riding out in the nice sun, next thing you feel are the pelts of rain?

Perforated leathers, Hydrapak, 70+ mph wind, it's all good

Did a track day at GSS during one of the hottest days of the year. Not much traffic in the afternoon sessions

All jokes aside, I am slowly building up a tolerance for it. Late last summer I rode with the CG Heat-out undie with mesh jacket, and it wasn't too bad. After seeing the aftermath of a few crashes though, I'm not too keen on mesh any more. I'm trying to find a good lightweight perforated leather jacket. I mean perforated all around, not just here and there. I've got partially perf'ed leather and I still cook in it.

It's a fact of life living in Houston. I'm just gonna have to come to terms with it.

That CG stuff is kind of cheap. Champion has a good price on their Compression Gear
