    It's fine into the low 90s as I'm moving.

    Last time I was in Bellefonte a few weeks ago I got really irked--all of down town was closed for a car show or something, and there were no marked detours.

    Oh yes, our local version of the Hershey fall meet, complete with vintage AMC products from the 1970's.........

    Seriously, there was no sign for a PA144 detour thru town to Milesburg (PA150)? If that ever happens again, just detour one block east around the town square and head north. You'll pass thru the historic district, (two to three blocks), then you have no choice (other than driving off a cliff into a flooded quarry) but to follow roads that rejoin PA144 North

    Have fun and stop at the Red Horse Tavern in Pleasant Gap. It's under new and really good management. Enjoy.

    I have wonderful timing: the last time I went through there was the day of the Sandusky sentencing, so every television van in the state was parked around the courthouse.

    I watched a transit bus do a 40+ point turn to clear the town "diamond" in the fraction of street that wasn't gobbled by the news vans. But, that is the price you pay when you're the epicenter of a spectacle.

    A tour bus from WI stopped in town to see the circus while in transit to NYC.

    Seriously--you're supposed to wear a shirt under it.
    okay, we're not talking nipples on mesh here .... I usually wear a "pollo" shirt with collar under, I just find the bare "arms" a bit uncomfortable..... call me wussy... .

    Back on the jacket-
    First Gear makes a couple, the Kilamanjaro and Kathmandu- that can be found at discount places at under $200, especially the "non-current" version.
    They're excellent gear for the $.

    RevIt is better but pricier- I use a now obsolete Scirroco as my 3 season jacket- been replaced by the Levante which is not better IMO.

    I just bought a First Gear mesh jacket for $161 and some change from Competition Accessories and think it's one of my best jackets for summer riding. It could use a little better armor but I can upgrade later.
