Summer Riding

Post  Jimcoleman on Thu 31 Dec 2015, 7:10 am

summer riding can be great or a bloody nightmare depending on where you live. 
Here in the Bega Valley (a little bandit enclave with myself, tag and ewok residing here) January is bloody hot. so as much as i like my leathers its not a pleasant experience wearing those this time of year. 

Yesterday i went for a ride to scrub in my new Dunlop RS3's and even at 3:30pm  it was just pleasant and that was riding with my textile pants, fox body armour ballistic jersey and ixon alloy vented jacket and am actually thinking of buying a mx jersy just to go over my body armour just for summer, i reckon that i should still have suitable protection and letting airflow through, but then on really hot days spending it by the pool is no subsitiute. 

What does every one else do ?

Took the bike out for a short spin yesterday. I have a Bikers Gear Warehouse (BGW) open mesh summer jacket, no liner, and either dri-rider summer pants (no liner) or BGW leathers.  It was very nice riding and it looks like I'll have the k's up to do the 78,000kms service and change the PR3s for PR4s for the WSBK trip. Very Happy

I'm starting to think I prefer winter for riding, less cages, less coppers, less bugs, less drama. Oh and believe it or not, where I am, less wind. I find riding in wind unpleasant at best. Seems to be windy every day here from September to March at least, unless it's raining of course, then the wind stops Rolling Eyes
I guess there's a reason they put a wind farm at Bungendore, could put one here as well easy.

All year round = Kevlar jeans (black, Draggin brand), Motodry mesh jacket (black). In winter I add a flanno under the jacket and a bamboo balaclava to keep my chin/face warmer. On super cold days (<5 degrees), I drive.
