comment What kinds of kickstands are good for touring?
This is a big discussion ("Neil said...") and then a small question ("Please, state the stand and then its advantages.") A better question might be "What's the best kind of kickstand for [lifting the rear wheel / loading groceries / etc.]?"

Even in the summer, if there's a light sprinkle on your cotton T-Shirt, with the wind of riding you can get a chill.

good point about head heat loss. Our scalp blood vessels don't vasoconstrict when we get cold, presumably because regulating brain temperature is so important.

comment How can I get started building a bicycle?
Most tasks when building a new bike are the same things you'd do while repairing a bike, especially overhauling or replacing a component. So practice there.

comment I often get a sore neck when riding. How can I adjust the setup of my bike to help prevent this happening?
Get someone to take a picture of you riding by, in profile.
