We are heading up to 39 here in Melbourne Australia on Friday; that is 39C and it will be very hot. I rode from Canberra to Melbourne in 40C heat two days before Christmas. I was OK while riding but extremely hot when stopped for a break.MacDoc said:next post likely be from tropical Australia for the second season.
I'm riding to/from work in similar conditions but, in the past month have seen a lot of temps between 0 and 5F on the way home. What gloves do you use and, are you happy with them?cactuspwr said:At 11:00 pm, time to back hone, it was 17*F.

At 11:00 pm, time to back hone, it was 17*F. not so bad. I use the same equipment than if the temperature was in the 40's except one more jacket, always the same AGGAT ( mesh jacket, 3/4 helmet etc..). No electric stuff. Everything was stored inside the bike outside.
