    Question Mesh jacket or other clothes for sun protection?

    When I owned my motorcycle I rode it rain or shine and until the temp dropped below 35 degrees. Back then I had a mesh motorcycle jacket and I never got sunburned with it.

    Any recommendations other than sunblock?

    i am hoping to purchase my atom next weekend or the week following.

    I would get some of those fishing long sleeve shirts that have a 40 sunblock built right in and then some of the other suggestions I made on your other post. Congrats and good luck with the ride, it will be an adventure.

    Thx Bob. I'll have to go take a look at those fishing shirts. I did not know about them. I made it to Alberquerque at 4 am this morning. Took longer than I planned when I made the hotel reservation.

    I don't know if the TMI cars are the same, but the sunscreen I was using damaged the finish on the paint where I would rest my arm. One of the things I did before I sold my Atom was to have the tubes refinished (I saved about pound of the custom color powdercoat powder from when my car was made) and then had all of the tubes clear-filmed for additional protection.
