I really like riding in jeans, so I was looking for some reinforced riding jeans. Are they really necessary? I suppose regular jeans would break down pretty fast in a slide, correct?
Jackets...this is where I really struggle. However, when it's 90 degrees here, I can't imagine wearing a leather jacket, no matter how vented it is. So, I'd like something that will work in the heat, and fits the look of the Storm. I don't particularly care about armor. I want something comfortable that provides a fair amount of protection.
Now that the weather is going into the low 90's in the afternoon, I seem to be the only one still wearing a jacket. While sitting at the lights, I know why!
I really don't feel comfortable anymore without an armored jacket so I am about ready to set a "90* rule". I ride on days where it's no more than 90deg when I'm out. When its going to be 90 and above, I'll take the air conditioned car.
I'd imagine KY & OH summers are just as hot and humid.
