Hot weather riding
« on: May 06, 2014, 09:31:05 pm »
I love my Trophy, but the wind protection is too good in this 95║ weather we are having.
Does any know of a way to get some air flow to my chest?

There have been a couple of threads on the subject.  The search function works well and should point you in the correct direction,  also there was a thread on cooling vests which I found quite interesting.  I may end up going that route.

I live in the most humid part of the country....Doesn't matter if I ride my Tiger Roadie or my TTSE, hot with full face helmet,Kevlar Jeans and Mesh Jacket...The only thing that helps is jumping in the pool after a beautiful ride..Keep the shiny side up my Illinois friend...

I think there are quite a few people in Houston, or even Orlando who would argue that point.

I had a screen on my ST1300 that had a Goldwing vent and it was great.

Same here, a Clearview screen. I do have a spare Goldwing vent and have been trying to get brave enough to cut it into my TTSE screen.  :005:

Anyone know what these screens are made out of?

I tend to believe the Trophy screen is acrylic  :187:
