100+ is insanely hot..especially if its humid.
Bike (ultra) has fuel moto ceramic pipe, high flow AC, powervision. Also see 210-230, slow traffic maybe 250ish?
Thought about trying to mod the rear fan thing from the M8 bikes...my thigh does get warm if not on the highway pegs...
for me....When its that crazy I use an airhawk pad, Frogg Togg Chilly Pad Cooling Towel and gatorback with water...and a light colored mesh jacket.
If your arms/skin arent covered you are asking for trouble!!!!.
Airhawk gives me a little airspace between the seat..some folks use beads....
Chilly towel is incredible..sorta like the cooling vest from above, but placed around your neck and shoulders, which has a large amount of blood flow; soak it, leave it wet and it will cool you down, and evaporate over time...rinse, repeat.
The camelback keeps me hydrated, and i use it to re-soak the cooling towel while riding. I have a large capacity camelback, and fill with water and big ice cubes........
Trust me here..on breaks look for (organic) coconut water..its the best...
Oh, and if you have a choice, ride on the lane that is in the shade...really...
good luck and stay cool!!!!
If you love your freedom, thank a Vet!!
