Ya I usually NEVER ride without my Joe Rocket jacket, but I dont know if u watch the weather at all but here in Boston it was 98 and about 85% humidity....try wearing a jacket in that weather....I dont think so!!!!
i was out riding the other day in cape hatteras, north carolina. heat index was 117 degrees. had all my gear on, i think i lost about 20 pounds from sweating so damn much. needless to say that the rest of my riding down there was casual and i only wore a t-shirt, jeans, helmet. TOO DAMN HOT!!!
I live in Southwestern NY and it has been very hot this summer, mid to high 80's each day. I would wear my leather jacket but that got way to hot, so i bought a Joe Rocket Phoenix Jacket, it is great for protection and lets you breath. You should try it out, you wont be disappointed<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
i live in upper florida, i wear the joe rocket reactor jacket during the summer. i've actually found it cooler to ride in a jacket on days than without. main reason is because the jacket keeps your sweat on you to cool you down, where a t-shirt lets it get evaporate faster than it can cool you down.
