Bombay would be number one in the list followed by Bangalore and then maybe Delhi. Pune has quite a few bikes too.

A couple of pics I clicked. Member's bike. Hope he doesn't mind me putting these up without asking him first! Didn't know he was the owner when I clicked.

22 Deg is a very comfortable envelope to be riding in. I sweat and boil and swear under leathers and a helmet.

Let me know if your friend has brought his bike down. If he's willing, I'd love to see it.

I couldn't imagine riding in the blistering heat here in summer,when the mercury tips a 104F.And with my heavy riding gear on,I'll be ready to sit on a platter served 'well-done'.

I'll keep you posted on the 636,Rajeev.

Buy mesh gear. Its the cheapest and you will love it in the summer. I usually wear a sleeveless tee inside a mesh jacket. You can also check mesh gloves and pants.

Yeah. It's one contentious issue that extends beyond mere comfort.
I recently opted out of my riding gang in Bangalore just because it became too expensive for me. The group (ex-Red Roosters) democratically voted that all must don full CE-certified riding gear to participate in Sabbath rides, so for me it meant my HiDesign leather jacket and jeans would not work any more and I would have to purchase mesh gear. On top of that came other forced costs like the need to replace my tyres, and I just couldn't afford it any more.

Remember, its not the jacket that is "CE" rated. Its the protective armor that is. So, even mesh jackets come with CE protection.

Rajeev,

I ride with a mesh jacket too. On the lookout for mesh pants though.

Straight6 any inputs on where I can find mesh pants?

Vijay
