OG motorcycle riders: best hot weather armored jacket?

I would wear what protects you best. Leather A* jacket (or something similar), race gloves, jeans, boots, and a good full face. Trust me you will go down and the amount you will sweat because of better gear will be worth the road rash they scrub with a brush to get the rocks out of your skin.

I’ve been down at over 90 mph three times with leathers, and never got a scratch. I went down at 20 mph and the road rash was brutal because I was wearing a t-shirt and shorts…

I just ordered these jacket sleeve vents. I’ll give an update this weekend on how they work.

For hot weather vented is the go to. Heat stroke is a legitimate concern.

That’s a solid pick man. You’ll love it when it gets hot, knowing you’re still protected.
