With the current temperatures felt, I found out that my multitasking jacket does not cut it. I purchased it earlier this year, but even with the liner removed, it gets uncomfortable. Not that I am not used to extreme temperatures, on both ends. Being an older guy, I would rather avoid a heat stroke if I can. Given that on a motorcycle, you need to remain focused on the road. I would like to purchase a jacket which is not a compromise summer/winter. I would like something which is exclusively conceived for hot weather, and still carries the usual protections. If anybody has any suggestion, I am listening. All the manufacturers have fancy names for Air flow, but I would rather follow advice from someone who wears one on a daily basis, not just a one time review. My second point is about those so-called "cooling jackets". You soak them in water, prior to your ride, and they are supposed to help for the next five to 10 hours. Anybody tried? are they effective?
Hello- I have reviewed several related posts on electrical issues but am left with this specific question: **What might cause the battery to drain when driving in hot weather at low speeds? Tach dies and bike begins to sputter when not driving at highway speed on hot days. Headlight remains on. Bike then fails to start. Charging it overnight cures all symptoms. Battery and regulators are approx 1.5 years old. Bike is Sport V11, has 60K miles, 1 owner. Thank you, Bob
