    Uh, yeah. Twice that many. For years, a bunch of us did a 600 mile round the state ride in the summer on our FZ1s.

    We should have seen this coming from the time that young fella came up with this wheel idea.
    The longer we continue to pretend that full employment, in the conventional sense, is attainable, the more likely this will all end badly.

    Heat by itself can be uncomfortable plus 40c temps not my idea of fun. Rome at 40c + when the air doesn't move and then add the ground heat was draining, eat plenty of gelato and endless bottles of water. My old home on the Canadian prairies(desert) at 40c+ had me searching for shade.

    But the worst I've encountered was in Amsterdam 36c with an accompanying 98-100% humidity, there is no hiding in the shade from humidity.

    Working hard doing meaningful things is what matters-I agree. Value cannot be merely assessed by the number of hours.
