    I haven't got one yet but I'm close to getting one

    And for the frying your eggs on the seat problem, try installing a sit-n-fly, it's a mesh seat cover usually used by dirt bikes, eliminates swamp butt, you get air flow all the way under your butt and thighs, highly recommend.
    I've had one installed on my NC for over 2 years and 50,000-60,000 miles, it works and the first one I installed still works and looks like the day I installed it
    Please let us know on the helmet

    + 10 on the sit-n-fly.

Sounds awkward at best but I do have something similar that I used to ice down my knee after a joint replacement operation so there's some proof in principle there. I think I vaguely remember seeing something like this for constructions workers too.
    it's called a LCVG Nasa uses them in space suits... and in a perfect world, you'd be able to get a refrigeration system hooked up to the engine to keep it cool, and a line to the radiator when you want to be warmer (probably with a thermostat to make sure you don't cause severe burns.)

    Where I live it gets hot (105f-112f) for a month or two every year, I've looked into most of this stuff

    Motorcycle Air Conditioning by EntroSys

    There's also a swamp cooler type system you wear as well with a vest with a large hump in the back that you fill with ice

    Then there's these

    Not sure, the only thing I actually own and use is the sit-n-fly, the one I'm most interested in is the a.c. helmet, seeing as I went down last month, I need a new helmet anyway but it's $250 more then the other helmet I'm looking at
