Smart wool/Merino wool underwear. I got a single pair about 7 months ago and they've been my favorite meaning they get worn about 1/2 the time. (I know... too much info!)

I don't have experience with them in the cold (live in Malaysia where it's hot and humid) but they seem great in hot, humid weather. My favorite before was ex-officio's synthetic boxers. I wear them for riding, hiking, anything... often my jungle rides include miles of hot, sweaty work on foot, hiking hills building bamboo bridges.

They stay wet longer than ex-officio synthetics BUT they are more comfortable to wear wet. (Of course I'd rather have any dry pair than a wet pair but they are the most comfortable wet and any dry pair quickly become wet in the jungle!)
They dry faster than cotton but not as fast as the synthetic ex oficios.
You'll get chaffing anytime you run/hike miles in a wet underwear BUT these are the best in that situation in my experience.
They feel the coolest in hot weather between synthetic, cotton and wool.
They do wear out faster and are expensive.

I'm gonna ninja-Rez this thread and share that the greatest accessory I have every purchased was 2" Rox Risers!

No more wrist and back pain and I can stand up offroad without having to slouch my shoulders; Plus you adjust the angle however you want. Best $80 I ever spend on my bike

"Camping" stove

I'd have to say hands down it's this. I Picked it up off of fleabay about 8 years ago. It's called a Radius No.15, 100% complete not too bad for a 1930s stove! It even has the original top ring which is viewable behind the stove in the picture below.



A small bit of cleaning was required, replacement of the NRV Non-retun valve puck (the piston kept backing out, loosing pressure, etc.) and a few gaskets as well as a proper inspection. We don't want to loose our eyebrows!



This stove has amazing stampings all over it. In the picture of the buner head below, you can read MADE IN SWEDEN around the shootingstar trademark. Sole Makers of the Genuine "RADIUS" Apparatus is written in ten languages that are around the tank/fount; Swedish, English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, 3 variations of Sanskrit & Arabic... Even a nothing trip is turned into an adventure using it!



My other stove (I carry 2 stoves) is the old Multi-fuel 1st generation Optimus-Burton Nova "Made in Sweden" with the Cejn connectors - later models were crap and dangerous apparently, so if you want a GOOD one, read this http://adventuresinstoving.blogspot....imus-nova.html.

Mine has been pretty good most of the time. Always carry a rebuild kit (any stove). I've more than once had to do field repairs.

Best piece of gear, the Aerostich catalog.

I ride with Aerostich: gloves, roadcrafter lite suit, roadcrafter darien jacket, heated jacket, balkava

The gear and service is untouchable.

My best would be to sell all the Aerostitch gear that I have accumulated. I am working on it.

Here is an underrated piece of equipment... Really handy. I keep a clear and tinted visor and switch back and forth.

Bought one @ Triumph (Trailridge Motorsports) Batesburg, SC
I'll look and see if there's still a package in the recycle bin tomorrow
