Ride naked.

Then through a car wash near your destination.

I only ride to work when I leave my driveway before sunrise during the summer or when I'm going on a leisure ride to the forest and back (or similar). That said, my bike doesn't get much love in the middle of summer. Got a car or 2 with AC for that reason alone.

No such thing as staying cool here...especially in stop and go traffic. Squidding just opens you up for sunburn, and you still get swamp .

Wet shirt under the jacket and wet hair under the helmet. I jam my Camelback with as much crushed ice as it will hold and fill the rest with agua. I have a waterbottle that I velcro behind the front faring someplace, (my GSXR is on the left ram-air tube) and squeeze it down my neck every once in a while. I spiderweb dry stuff on the back if I think I'll need to change when I get where I'm going.

I fill my camel back with ice and a little water. It acts as an air conditioner on my back.

The only way to cool 90 degree air is to condition it. As far as gear, perforated leathers or mesh.

You could try this: Alpinestars MX Cooling Vest
