Seems reasonable - how else are you going to get good circulation thru the aircon?

if you have a rack,and im guessing you do,you can buy a airconditoner to go on the back of your bike,about as big as a fridge,you then buy a newsuit,that connects to the air conditioner and hot days hay presto you keep cool.however,if you want one be quick,the health and safety brigade are trying to ban them,due to some one freezing to death on the A1m in 90% heat,they had set it up wrong so be warned.on the flip side,i to have noticed incorrect product placement,say you are watching world at war,the adds come on for tampons,like anyone that uses such products would be watching such educational programs.

There are two versions of this product.

The cheap one blows cool air into an inflatable suit which keeps you cool, but does make you look like the michelin man.

The deluxe version uses a liquid coolant that is piped through microbore piping throughout the suit and does not spoil the lines of your jacket.

Hopefully, they've taken coolant tips from F1 (the KERS batteries are cooled by the fuel) and natural selection will do the rest.

I don't suppose many of you will have heard of Peter Brough and his puppet Archie Andrews, well Peter was the first radio Ventriloquist and he appeared with his puppet on a television program where it was obvious he moved his lips, that was when his career ended...or did it..now that Archie has grown up he owns a motorbike and he and Peter both dress up in biker gear with full face helmets and are back in the business again..."I can't think why I didn't do this all those years ago" says Peter. "It's because they didn't have full face helmets back then" replies Archie..

You can book them by phoning the number in the advert.
