I wear 2 piece leathers, boots, gloves and helmet when I ride, and will wear it no matter where i go and how hot it gets.
Question I have is what do you do with your gear once you get to the location where you will be spending several hours? Lets say you ride to whistler and will be walking around and grabbing some food for few hours. Where does your gear go?
And for the sake of argument, lets say that none of the people you are with have cars, so you cannot put your gear in their car.
