I ride everyday so I guess I just get use to the heat and it doesn't bother me much. I sweat but my jackets have never really built up an odor so I've never had to try and clean them.
I will tell you as a burn patient that road rash is right up there with a 3rd degree burn. I had a burn as a result of an overheating laptop (instant overheat), spent 2 days in Blocker Burn Unit @ UTMB- and just with the relatively small area, developed MRSA.

I don't care how hot it is, I am wearing my leather. I don't ever want to have an open wound like that burn EVER again. Every person has staph on their skin. Give it an opening (like road rash) and it will take every avenue it can to get into the blood stream.

I spent 3 months going to daily visits to the burn unit - just to get it to heal up. It took less than 2 days for the major infection to set in.

When it was hotter than (and humid as ) today, I was in my leather. That one burn (and road rash as a kid) was enough to convince me!

Yeah, I did too. So with it being 'perfed, the faster I rode to get airflow ;-)

Today wasn't that bad. I rode in perfed leather jacket and leather gloves. When the hairdryer turns on thus August I will be looking for relief or riding where/when I am less likely to dip under 30.

The good thing is if you get a few minutes at 80, the sweat you build up will go away. The bad thing is if you are wearing a nice shirt you will be less than presentable.

Was it roughly the same price there as on Revzilla? Because I'd love to go get one (or something similar) in a few months if they're not like $100 more.

Wanting to say it was a bit cheaper than Revzilla. I had to get a Eu 64/Us 54 and it was there the next day. I love that jacket. It has the liner for the winter, but zips right out for spring/fall/summer use, has perfs, and zippered vents @ the shoulders.

Awesome. I'll have to go check them out one day in the future.

I'd really rather not take a shot in the dark on ordering a $400+ leather jacket online, so I'm fine with dropping a couple bucks on a place that lets me try it on.

I've been riding sportbikes since 1992 and although there are still people that squid it up it seems like there are more and more responsible geared up riders out there even in this heat. I credit MH for a lot of this. Great job everyone!

Last fall I threw out about 4k in gear @ 2 Wheel Toyz. When I ordered a suit that I thought I would like (it was a new design Alpinestars that zipped to the side of the chest instead of up the middle), and it didn't work well, Jack took it back, exchanged it and ordered me a new suit. When his suppliers did not have the SP suit in stock, he called Alpinestars and got the last 64 they had. Exchanged with no problem. They measure you pretty good (if you are a bigger guy, thats good), if you are average size, chances are they have the jacket in stock. Come to think it, I think my Jaws jacket was in stock already-- the GP Pro was the one that they ordered and had in a couple of days. I have found 2 Wheel Toyz is much easier to deal with than CycleGear or some of the motorcycle dealers who carry Alpinestars or can order..... When I needed thinner jaw pads in my Shoei helmet, they gave me a call when the Shoei rep was there and swapped them out on the spot. When it comes to gear, I only go to 2 Wheel Toyz.
