Current bike (CBR1000rr) is terrible at night and it's miserably hot in the daytime in S. Texas this time of year so haven't been riding much.
I rode Wednesday to Sattler. The ride up was great but the afternoon trip home was brutal at any stop in Boerne. I mentioned this to my dealer. She said Academy Sports has CamelBak back packs with a hose/straw some riders are strapping on under their jackets. I checked them out on the Internet. At $30-40 for 1.5-2 liter units this looks like a possible relief from the heat. Filled with ice and water they are supposed to be good for a couple of hours. The 70 oz version is supposed to weigh about 5 and 1/2 pounds filled. The bite valve allows you to drink from the back pack without using your hands.
