Hot or Wet
Patrick thanks for your notes as well....where weather is pretty predictably hot -southern Nevada Utah Colorado-its usually pretty easy to dress for the heat while still retaining some protection ....
what I'm trying to do is figure out how to minimize the on/off dance that seems to be needed in more variable climes...I'm sure you've done the ahead of the rain, stop and suit up, then no rain, sun comes out, another stop to rain gear off, then out of nowhere, it pours.
I seem to ride either Hot or Wet. Now... in some places that's a desirable state of affairs - but usually in a location other than on a bike.
There may be no solution to this - on a horse it might be oilskins - but they flap too much at speed.
Maybe I should just try to get good at gearing on and off while still riding.....
Anyway...thanks for your observations on this...
