I have been in California for the last six weeks tending to my hospitalized son so I am missing that awful heat since it only gets as high the mid 90s here. His home is in the foothills of the Sierras near Georgetown and the roads there are fantastic for riding. Unfortunately, I don't have my motorcycle with me. I'll be back soon, but not looking forward to the heat.

I saw a piece on the news last night that was interesting. TxDot has placed sensors in the pavement in certain roadways around the DFW area. Over the last few days they have seen the highest temps ever. Near the surface, these sensors are registering 135 degrees! Now thats HOT!

Didnt you build a "Mr Chill" cryogenic vest?? Are you using dry ice or liquid nitrogen in yours.
Paciia,

Why, yes I did. Switched to a larger cooler in the back seat. Used two milk carton sized blocks of ice (H2O). Tested it last Sunday over 150 miles and 2.5 hours. Temperature hovered between 100-102.

When I got back to the house, I still had two blocks of ice the size of softballs, so I suspect I could have ridden another hour before the ice melted.

When I get back from my stepson's wedding, I'll start a thread with pics on my attempt for a cooling vest. Total price was <$120.

It worked well on my torso but at these temps - it's still d**n hot!!!!
