[RC] Black is way hotter! - Lynn White

When I was yonger and MUCH stronger I used to work as a driller's helper.  We'd 
work out in the hot sun doing heavy lifting and general hard physical labor.  I 
went out an bought a bunch of black t-shirts to hide the grease stains  (I 
know, it's a girly thing.).  I learned real quick never to wear a dark colored 
t-shirt when working in the hot sun.  I could work way longer in a grease 
stained light color than bake in black.  The only time you'll see me wearing 
black riding tights is in the winter when I need the heat.

To this day I will never understand why Harley bikers always wear black leather 
on 100+ degree days. I get the need for leather, just not the color.  Mary Kay 
pink would absorb way less heat.
