ZX10 Special edition

it doesnt matter what temperture it is out side i always wear a leather jacket, full face helmet, and leather gloves if im just cruising around town. if i plan on going on the back roads or just going through turns i wear full leather suit, w/ motorcycle boots. this is what i tell myself. i can always wash off sweat but i can wash off road rash. the choice is yours.

Cooling vest. I tried them and they worked great! I have an evaporated one (Though it feels a little damp) and I'm going to get the ones with the cooling pack. It cost of lot more though Below are some links. Hope this helps.

This is what I have

With cooling packs

Just got back from a ride...I'm not much of an early bird LOL...anyway. I ride in full-face helmet, gloves, leather jacket, leather pants, and motorcycle boots. I have a perf leather/mesh jacket and some mesh armored pants if it gets extremely hot. Right now the leather is working fine for me.
indecision may or may not be my problem

Get you a set of perforated leathers for the track and SMR's.

Good venting helmet, Mesh Jacket, Leather Gloves, Boots and Jeans for tooling around town. (Although I have not done this in a while. I did take the track bike around the neighborhood a few times last week. :laughing6 )

Yup. Jacket and pants with ce-rated armor: AlpineStars Textile Jacket, Joe Rocket Cleo mesh pants over some jeans or shorts. Sidi Boots, Joe Jocket Racing Gloves and of course my Scorpion helmet.

If it is too hot to ride with gear, I won't ride (usually around 96F). I take the truck and enjoy the AC.

That said - I wear a mesh w/armor during the hot months and boots and gloves and long pants. AND a helmet

What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
