I went for a short(ish) ride today - it was 42.4C (108.3F) where I was. VERY uncomfortable, although the mistake I made was going out a bit too far and then having to endure the ride back. It's 21:45 right now, and still 39.1C (102.4F). I know some of you (Mark!) put up with hotter temps from time to time, but this was like sitting in front of a big hair dryer for the entire ride.

Thank goodness for air conditioning and swimming pools!! :)

OH, thanks for THAT swell post! You do know it is 9 degrees, (farenheit not Centigrade) here in CT! This is the coldest day in two years. NOt including the windchill which brings the temp down more.

You lucky dog!

i had NO idea it got so hot there
wow....
the only way to stay hydrated on a day such as that...

is to put in IV pole on your bike and run some fluids WIDE OPEN the whole time you are out there

Maybe so - but just try getting a needle into me! :)

That's not a bad day here in the summer. July/August can get really hot. Need to drink lots of water - I stop every hour or so to hydrate when the temp is over 100F. A camelback type set up would be a good thing.

Now, that's not a dry heat is it? If so, you could alway try the wet t-shirt trick. :)

how did the bike cope wih these extreme temperatures?
It was just fine while I was moving. Whenever I stopped at lights the temp went up pretty sharply - but still maxed out at 97C.

Eeeewwww! Trust me - you wouldn't want me in a wet t-shirt. It would set back the cause of motorcycling by many years! :)

hmmmm
and i didn't even mention the CATHETER to monitor your "output" we were going to INSERT :jsm:
Yep - never gonna happen I'm afraid. You can do anything to me and with me, as long as it doesn't involve sharp pointy things! :)

That's good. Are you using any additive (Waterwetter or the like)?

I've only done 2,200km since new - so whatever they put in at the factory is what I'm using. I haven't touched it at all.

well..... it is neither sharp NOR pointy :)

seriously.....
when are you coming to florida?
Ahh - but it does a good impression! :)

All I can say is: "As soon as I can" - but probably not for a while. I'm so busy at the moment with starting a new business, teaching, training GPs, and writing my PhD (which means that I almost certainly should take a break) - but rest assured that one day I'll be winging it in!! :)
