In Florida you deal more with humidity management than heat management, don't you? Max highs are never over 100 as I see, and normal highs are about 90. You need light colors and lots of ventilation for your coat/pants/gloves and your helmet.
Skin temperature in the summer is around 95°F, so when riding in air above that, the air heats the skin. In this case a rider would do better with limited ventilation and a cooling evaporative layer next to the skin.
