It heats and cools - you look ridiculous, but I can see it having its uses in very extreme climates: EntroSys Motorcycle Air Conditioner

Well, being that they started taking "pre-orders" for it in January of 2010, saying that they are "in production" and would be "release shortly"....and a year later they still aren't for sale anywhere, I would say that there's a fair chance they will never be for sale. Unfortunately.

I could definitely see Honda adding this to a future Goldwing, however. The technology (peltier junction) is cheap, relatively small, simple and light.

I guess if people are willing to attach a hose to their gear astronaut style, then this may be a viable option, but I suspect most people will not be pleased with its looks.

Dumb idea. Open your jacket or wear a mesh one.

One reason I ride is to get away from the artificial climates of air conditioning and climate control, which seems to be every where. Don't think I will needing one of those.
