Down here leather is too hot for year-round riding. Most people wear one of the textiles or a hybrid. I myself bought a Joe Rocket Reactor S textile/leather hybrid. This kind of jacket is a throw-away at $179. The first skid usually renders them useless. You sacrifice some reusability for comfort.

Too hot even for perforated leathers?

No, just too cheap for perforated leathers :)
:lol:

I hear ya! I really want to start riding with leather but I can't stomach the $500 it will cost to do so. So I just keep my speed down and my head up.

I do wish they offerred more 2 piece riding suits with perforated leather. Sitting in the sun with black all over just doesn't appeal to me.
