I found this article under AllState Insurance, short and to the point.Motorcycle in the Heat

With the skyrocketing temperatures of summer now upon much of the country, motorcycle riders need to take a little extra care to keep their mind and body tuned-up to deal with the heat.

One easily preventable and often overlooked motorcycle safety hazard on the road is dehydration.

What is dehydration?

In simple terms, dehydration is using more water than your body is taking in. This means you don’t need to be running a marathon for dehydration to set in. The act of riding your motorcycle in the heat can be a cause. Spending hours in the saddle under the hot sun without replenishing your fluids can be a recipe for disaster.

What are some of the symptoms of dehydration?

  • Headache
  • Weakness
  • Dry Mouth
  • Increased Thirst

Do you feel a little “off”? Listen to your body. The dizziness or sluggishness a motorcycle rider may experience as a result of not taking in enough fluids can have dire consequences.

Hot Weather Motorcycle Riding – Be Prepared

Often, your body may be experiencing mild dehydration before common symptoms begin to appear. With a small amount of extra planning before you get on your bike, you can keep your body strong and your mind sharp for the duration of your ride.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Ben Franklin

Hot Weather Motorcycle Riding Gear – Hydration Pack

Most sporting good and department stores carry hydration packs that can be worn on your person. They consist of a refillable bladder inside of a narrow backpack style bag. The bladder has a long straw tube that can even be used while you are riding.

TIP: Filling your hydration pack first with ice, and then filling it the rest of the way with water keeps it cooler longer.

Reusable Water Bottles

A thermos or reusable water bottle tucked in your tankbag or luggage could be just what the doctor ordered.

In addition to replenishing your fluids, having to stop to take it out and drink from it can give your body a few moments to rest. Pick a nice, shady spot and enjoy the scenery while you recharge your battery.

What to Drink

Water is the best option for keeping your body hydrated. A sports drink is also a good choice.

Alcoholic beverages like wine and beer as well as caffeinated beverages like soda, coffee and teas are diuretics and actually encourage fluid loss. They should be avoided to keep your motor running in tiptop shape.

Ride Smart, Ride Safe!

Don’t leave your personal safety to chance during the dog days of summer. Leave home prepared with something to drink along the way.
