Quick trip to L.A. this weekend

Decided to do an unannounced visit to my parents to check and see if everything is going well and the assisted care person is taking good care of my parents. Glad to say that she is taking good care of them.

Saturday: Left at 10:44 AM and got there at 4:53 PM with two stops. One for fuel and drink and the second for a drink and to cool off. It was 106 in the central valley on Saturday. Was a bit dehydrated when I got to L.A.

Return trip was today. left around 11:40 AM and got back at 5:30 PM with two stops as well. Fueled up and drank fluids. Temps were down3-7 degrees in the central valley so the trip back I faired better.

Averaged around 72 mph on both legs of the trip but didn't get past 40 mpg.

Powerade (my preference) and Gatorade do work. I have also stopped eating meals before or during the trips except for an energy bar if I really need to. Meals tend to make me sleepy.

Did a bit over 800 miles for the weekend and th bike never skipped a beat.

Time for a 12K service after CCR.
