I hate this hot, humid shit 10 times as much. Fuck, there's nothing worse than 98 degrees and humid. It's like living inside an armpit.

Well, I'll take the armpit over the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. I mean, cripes, I can ride in this stuff and once I get moving, the air actually feels okay. But I can't ride in -9 temps. All I can do then is drink beer, belch and sob quietly in the corner.

Screw summer.

I've always loved Fall/winter.

There's nothing better on a freezing cold day than to find a nice warm bar and be drunk by 1:30 in the afternoon.

I'm trying to figure out how that's different from my daily routine...

Me too.

Katie has unfortunately inherited my heat index. The kid cranks out heat like a furnace. The poor thing cracks a sweat drinking water.

EXCELLENT!

Imagine the swoopy-est, weirdest 50's era scoot body with a severely tuned RZ motor in it. mmmmmMMMmmm

Obviously there would be...issues...with an RZ motor in this one, but imagine the fun if you could stuff a modern ruckus 50cc motor in it.



Sacrilege, but still a fun thought.

I sorta have a VERY unlady-like propensity for sweating like a damn Clydesdale in hot weather. At MSF classes I look like I'm about to have a heart attack--a nice lobster red with sweat pouring off me and my hair soaking wet. And I'm fine. I just look like I'm not.

Ooo, Max's Piatti!

My buddy Jay commented "It looks like a cocktail frank with a toothpick sticking out of it." Might be an excellent Wienermobile for IlStupido down there in Memfix.
