Humidity plays a major factor in it for me. But when you're looking at temp alone, my prime riding temp is 65-75. Depending upon the humidity, 75-85 can be alright. Get past that, I don't do much riding. The months of July and August I hardly ride at all. So yeah, I be a pvssy. I ride my bike for pure recreation. When it gets too hot, I have other recreation activities that I do.

It's either walk or ride, I have no other options... but I still wear gear and would rather sweat than bleed.



...thank the heavens above for armored mesh...

Alright I'll add my 2 cents.

Today I wore the full two piece... FT lowers, A* boots/gloves and JR top. 8-2 w a short break at Yankees, three tanks of gas and 415 miles.

In the sun, the thermostat read 95-100 on the motorcycle. While riding the average 80-90 on my trip up to Buffalo I had the thermostat in my jacket pocket, on my chest. At a stop I pulled it out and it showed 98.

Considering the fact Im not hot from the sun heat directly on my skin nor dehydrating early from the wind, I'd say the leathers are doing me well.

People are constantly perplexed on how I can ride with my leather jacket in this weather. They don't understand the concept. It's mainly my co workers that see me ride in everyday that don't get it. The sun beating down on you alone would be bad enough.

The heat is fine for me. I just hate that fcking humidity that takes your breathe away and makes it feel like a truck is sitting on your chest.

I voted "Sometimes it's to hot to ride, so I don't", because if I'm going to work I can't ride my bike in this weather and show up all sweaty and smelly.
If I'm on my day off that's a different story, I don't care if there's traffic or 100 degree weather. I'll probably get a heat stroke one of these days while I'm stuck in traffic in full leathers lol
