  5. 43 degree heat?? Good riding?? What planet are you on dude? :LOL: Every bike i saw today i had a good chuckle at. Bet those guys thought it was a great idea at the time! At the same time, i felt sorry for those that only ride and have no air conditioned car. :LOL: Couldnt think of anything worse than being stuck on the bike today!

  8. I went for a ride today... Although... By 'ride', what I actually mean is 'traversing the hot side of the sun whilst trying to smile and prove that I was better than those on bikes wearing t-shirts'.

    In the end I decided fRuIt this... Beer + Fan + Back Porch + My beautiful girl = Bliss.

    Damn the heat! Bring on the snow tyres! :grin:

  9. Soooft! Yesterday's heat wasn't even that bad. At a bit over 100kmhr there was a nice cool breeze. I feel sorry for those that only ride on 26deg sunny days.
