That all depends on the rider. I've ridden in weather that hot, but I live in a dry climate.
If you do it, absolutely positively listen to your body. If you start feeling light-headed or dizzy, get off the bike and into some shade. Get to air-conditioning as quickly as possible. Even those of us who regularly ride in the heat have days when we should have stayed home.
I had a friend who was an EMT and a motorcyclist. Her boyfriend was also an EMT and a motorcyclist. On a summer ride, the combination of hot temperature, leathers, and the heat coming off her engine was too much. They got to a grocery store. He carried her to the frozen food isle, laid her on the cool tile floor, and poured water on her. Sure, it looked ridiculous, but it probably saved her a trip to the emergency room. And I'm sure people in that town are still talking about it.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.
