Summer riders wardrobe

Time to gear down for hot and humid weather. Breaking out the shorts, flippity flops, and non-stick drawers. Making sure body gets plenty of air even if it is hot enough to cook an egg on my tank.
Pulling out the right skid lid so head can stay cool. Here is a guide-line of what everyone will be changing over to this summer.

Today I took a day of vacation and did some significant yard work before 5 days of rain coming from Tx.

Got started early and had time to ride right before rain. It was very hot and muggy but had lots of wind. I wore shorts and for first time, got to feel the heat from cowls when placing my feet on highway pegs.

Wow! If it is already this hot riding the valky, I'm sure I'll have to adjust my riding times when the real hot/humid stuff comes.

Yeah in Summer I usually prefer to wear shorts and t-shirt when I am riding on bike, because its lil bit difficult to wear jacket, trousers, and shirts in summer, I mostly buy my rider shirts and shorts from the ski bum Coupon and I never ever forget to wear a helmet in summer and winter both season because its the main source of our head safety.

I know the consequences of skin rubbing on asphalt... Chance I have to take otherwise couldn't ride at all down here.

I've heard all the stories about how it is cooler to cover the skin and how perforated jackets actually keep you cooler. Well! I ain't the guy wearing all that.

That hot air hitting my legs, arms, and face is a reminder that I'm living the good life. Oh! Always wearing helmet regardless.

I'm now riding on wooden beads. My butt loves it!

I need a back rest for the drivers oem seat. Have no idea how to get one so if you do have info on this, please post it. I'm determined to make this seat work.

I commute on my Blue Beast year round, so in summer I wear a White Riding jacket use a blue cooling towel that I wet down and put in a plastic container in the office refrigerator until 5pm. I then wrap it around my neck, tuck into my shirt and the put jacket and helmet on. It makes a 105 day bearable for the 40 minute ride home.

Ah! I just ordered one.

The heat is already upon us here in the south and tends to suck all the fun out of riding. Maybe the towel will help some.
