    I've hesitated to apply for membership because for me, "winterizing" means putting the perf jacket away. But as qualifications, I CAN produce pictures of my bikes in, on, and around snow!
    It's true that summer is the tough one around here. So far in 4 years I've only abandoned a ride once. North Shore Drive (around Lake Mead) and it was 112 at the ranger station. 12 miles later I realized the "wind chill factor" doesn't apply over 100 degrees. It's just more hot air! I ended a "pleasure ride" because it just wasn't fun. Luckily the commute is <4 miles so even temps above 110 are bearable.

    Hang on, Summer is just around the corner.

    >also, can anyone recommend a good way to wick water off the face sheild while still maintaining visibility, that rain-x stuff is too filmy from my experience, i've hit "unexpected" rain 3 of my last 4 trips, i think its a curse...........

    I love the little finger squeegies you get from RiderWearhouse. They work great. The HeinGericke Taureg jacket I wear in inclement weather has a shoulder pocket and I keep it in there so I'm never without it.

    I use the Held Storm Gloves and they have a squeege built into the left index finger.

    Turtle Wax sheds the rain drops without the multi-colored swirlies.
