Can anyone suggest a good summer jacket?
What I think I'd like would be one consisting simply of protective mesh with pads in the elbows, spine and shoulders.
I have a very nice jacket, but it's simply too much when it gets into the 80's and beyond. It's bad enough putting on the full coverage helmet.
On an entirely different note for those who wear glasses. I had been accustomed to wearing sunglasses over my regular glasses because I never could bring myself to buy prescription sunglasses especially since my regular glasses were shot also. This never worked well nor for long since my head became sore after an hour or so.
After reading an article on Slate.com, I went ahead and ordered prescription sunglasses along with regular glasses-(distant, biofocals and anti reflections lenses) on goggles 4U .com. The prescription sunglasses did not have biofocals since I don't read on my bike.
The bottom line is that I got both pair of glasses for $85 bucks shipping included!
The sunglasses were less than $30
My regular glasses cost over $350 and that was four years ago.
So if you always wanted prescription sunglasses, but never thought you could afford them, think again.
