Any cooling tips will be appreciated.
When riding last summer in 90 F humid weather I stopped at a convenience store and bought a small bag of ice. I poured some of it in the large back pocket and put the suit back on. It took about 2 hr to melt and kept my back nice and cool. Enough air flows through the suit to provide evaporative cooling. When I stop I take the suit off and hang it over the front of the bike and let the inside dry.[/QUOTE]
Yep, even 'Stich's own website gives that tip, of filling the pockets with ice for summer cooling.
Track riding, eh? May want to look at the Roadcrafter accessory section of their catalog/website for knee pucks for your suit, I think they have 2 versions.
You are probably going to remain cooler with the RC than in a leather suit. and you can open the air vents, too.
