    But wherever you are, there's no point in complaining -- it's just going to get worse -- whether it's too much heat or too much water.

    I went through Phoenix about that time driving a VW bus/camper (no AC). Wife went into the back to fix us a couple of sandwiches. By the time she had them made, they were on toast and the cheese was "grilled". lol
    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.
    ........So I went home.

    whisky on the rocks
    And change of a dollar for the jukebox?

    94f is not bad unless humid and you have to work a heavy physical job.

    But on a bike its always vicious and fatiguing.
    Id pick freezing to death over heat.

    You sitting at idle? I've never had that many bars of engine temp.
    Stoplight at 40 on that bikes like sitting over a fire. Enough to singe leg hair and melt your flip flops.

    Don't know if I'm going to be around or what my schedule is but give a shout on the way through. Maybe grab a coffee or a brew. You still have my cell#???
