Best underwear on the planet. Buy two of each. They wash in the sink or you can take a shower with them on and they dry in minutes. Are treated with anti-microbial chemicals so they don't build up a stink.

I did two weeks in rural Mexico in the middle of July with just two pair of this underwear. Two years later they still look new.

I use Champion tops and bottoms from Target.
100% polyester... Good wicking properties... Quick drying... Reasonably priced...

Here is an example

I like the Under Armour heat gear. The compression style for under leathers. Makes getting in and out of them a breeze. Long sleeves and pants, even on the 90 F days.

Microfiber is better than cotton for underwear, wicks, dries quickly.

I've got several Dri-Fit T shirts (Made by Nike and Reebok) that work great as long as there is at least a little airflow and they aren't in direct sunlight. If either of these conditions are absent, all bets are off, haha. Both conditions met, it feels like air conditioning. I usually pay like $10-14 for these at Ross Dress for Less.

I just wear regular underwear shorts and tees on my 'adventures', and jeans or shorts over them, under my riding gear. On long rides I plan to do laundry once a week, so I carry four sets, and change each second day. EVERYTHING to be washed gets done at the SAME time...! (A month in '09, "who-knows-how-long" this summer...!)

Bike shorts work great. Get triathlete ones with a small butt pad rather than full on cycling shorts that have too thick a pad. Agree with a long sleeve runner's shirt under a mesh jacket. I recently bought a Joe Rocket Radar mesh/leather jacket. Nice!

I use underwear that I bought at a running room store...not sure the brand but it wicks moisture and you could wash it in a sink if you're traveling and It'll hang dry in no time.

In post #4 above, twowheels starts off, "Depends . . ." I'm thinking, "You wear Depends on your rides and just let loose when necessary?! Now that's some serious riding!"
