Ride baby...RIDE!!!!!!!!! Hot humid weather doesn't stop me at all and I still wear my gear. Yeah, the textile comes out on the commutes to work or cruising around town or heading to a bike night but I'll still full leather it on the days out in the twisties. It's just sweat anyway...I'll survive!!! Besides...I'm sick, I LOVE HEAT.

Umm ya, :iagree: what he said. Too bad you can't choose more than one cause the first three answers are all applicable.

I agree although I do get sick of the humidity....in my opinion...nothing better then desert heat. I love it.

If you want heat, come on down to AZ. It topped 113 yesterday (120 at the airport!), 112 the day before, and I think its going to be 110+ again today. And on top of that, I checked the thermometer at 11PM last night, it read 99 degrees! :yikes: But the nighttime is my favorite part of summer. I just like how there is no sun and it can stay at 100 degrees. We get some (not much) humidity during our Monsoon season. Those are awesome too! Wouldnt recommend riding in one though. :bonk:

I know....it's called family and where the career is at. everyone is right here and we have a really large family and it's nice having the support...especially with little ones. Almost headed south multiple times when I was younger but my roots are here and at the time didn't want to up and leave......and one more thing...I may like the desert heat, but I love snow too...except for it killing riding season. Yep.....chev is on crack!!!

I tend to ride more during the summer, I just change the jacket from a leather to mesh. I remember when I first bought my bike a few years ago in November it was 20 to 30 degrees I didn't care I just wanted to ride, but now I park it for the winter unless it atleast 55 degrees or warmer. I've already put 3,500 miles on the bike this year, and its just the beginning of summer.

I ride more! And late into the night a lot of times too! Last night was pretty amazing... Nice cool air blowing through the vents, full moon lighting up the road... Orange barrels light the way like a torchlit path... Ahhh summer...

I agree that riding at nights in the summer is awesome. In the day here, though, it's 90-100 and humid. It sucks. Mesh or not, it's hot.
