What riding gear for North India in August?
Hi. In August I am renting an Enfield in Delhi and riding up to Leh. However I am a little worried that my current gear, a Spada textile suit, will be too warm. It's fine for the UK and Europe but i start to get uncomfortable once the temperature nears 30 celcius. From what i've read, the northern plains of india in august will be bastard hot, and i don't deal with heat well so i'm considering getting some warm weather gear. I will also encounter cold conditions on the high passes of the manali-leh highway but i am not so worried about that as i can layer up and dont mind the cold. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I was looking at the hein gerike air? I guess it's good in heat, but i'm assuming not waterproof and might be a bit rubbish at altitiude. The Akito Desert looks like it may be a better all rounder. I dont want to spend too much, £200 all in, as it will probably only be used for hot weather trips, so the BMW gear is not an option! I'd be interested to hear from anyone with experience of the HG Air or Akito Desert clothing? Thanks.
