Yup.



Did you know the XC ambient temp gauge doesn't read anything after 120 degrees? Just shows a couple of dashes like it has had it.

This is how I personally beat the heat to still ride. It works very well. I throw an evap vest on underneath the mesh jacket if I get really hot.

Why no scary skeleton face?

This is how I beat the heat:



Hey, I got two in the driveway. I gotta use them for something!

You would think hot weather gear would come in other colors then black.

I saw a guy in a mask like that today. Looks like he was looking for a bank. I road and when I got back it was just at 100. Never really felt hot on the bike until I came to red lights. Sitting there with the sun and the engine heat it gets pretty toasty quick.

Blame it on me
