    Neato, never thought of an ice vest!

    Say, I want to do my 6K service this weekend. Anyone want to take my bike out and heat up the oil for me..?
    Oh heck, that's dumb, I'll just leave it outside for a while...

    I think we are moving out of the Dog Days of Summer and moving into Fall. Better weather is on the way........

    Yep. I have not ridden for weeks, but now that we are dipping into the low/mid 80s I am going to start again.

    Yes, I am a pussy and only ride when the conditions please me.

    It was 79 degrees when I rode home yesterday. Late October weather. Unbelievable. Unfortunately it won't last. I expect many more 100+ degree days before the weather really turns for the better.

    I rode last night after work 140 mile round trip to my local mountains for dinner. It was 95 degrees when I left the valley floor and when I reached 7,400 ft., it was 59 degrees. Felt great and makes me want to do more riding. Looking forward to the next 3 months of great riding weather in Central California.

    High 90’s at my house but I can ride to where it was in the low 70’s this last weekend at 7,200 feet, just 75 miles from my house. 95% twisty roads which makes for a fun day ride. [​IMG]
