5. Air Conditioning


Look, if they can find a way to make your phone a camera and a Walkman and a GPS and a thing not to answer all at once, don’t tell me somebody can’t come up with some sort of helmet/jacket combo that circulates chilled air around your scalp and torso when you’re sitting there in parade mode on Main Street. Or lost in Death Valley on your KTM. And I’m not talking about some ungainly spaceman apparatus either, I’m talking NASA-grade nano-conditioning the size of a small parrot perched on your shoulder or a pack of Marlboros on top of your helmet. If it’s going to keep getting hotter, this needs to happen. And it’s a request I make for all mankind, since we MOites can just continue clinging to the Pacific Coast if nobody smart is going to get on the stick.
