Just a quick review - for those from hotter climates it may be useful:

EvapoDana from Rider Warehouse...

WHAT: triangular neckerchief sorta device designed as on-bike cooling system.

WHERE: RiderWarehouse

COST: Dunno - was a present, but I seem to remember less than $20 in the catalog.

TEST CONDITIONS: NJ Garden State Parkway, temps ranging from 85F to 97F measured at the front of a K100RT (oven) and 100F to 115F measured behind the windshield. Dry (low humidity) day.

RESULTS: At any speed over 10 mph - EvapoDana is a winner. It's an absorbent clothing thingie - two sides, fuzzy and smooth. Soak it with water, put FUZZY SIDE IN (tried it last weekend the other way around - wasn't near as effective). Gives considerable cooling effect for up to 3 hours use in unbearable heat.

RATING: A *GOOD* THING. As good as electrics in the winter. Cost effective, non-poluting and adds a certain stylish look to riding in unbearable heat in a Stich (they not only think you're nutz for riding in the heat - but even nuttier for wearing a heavy black bandana sorta thing.)
