Looking at your picture and hearing about the heat I figure we must be close.

I'm in Walla Walla. Stop by.

I'm over on the wet side but was coming back from a weekend trip to Boise. That photo was just up Highway 125 a few miles. Bee-yoo-tiful part of the world over there - I love the wheat fields just before harvest.

But it's a dry heat in AZ!

May be dry but it is like standing in front of a hair dryer or being inside a convection oven! We've had 42 days over 100 degrees F so far. They are projectng we will break the old record of 99 days over 100 degrees set in 1994!

Then again, we don't have to shovel the heat!

Regards,

I went out at 11am yesterday and it was 109˚F already. No, we don't have to shovel heat, but this is going to take some getting used to.

I guess we all have to deal with our own weather, but I'd much rather sno-blow a few times than deal with that! My God, I start to sweat just thinking about it!

I was in central Wisconsin last week visiting and every day it was 100F+ and typical midwest summer humidity. I didn't have the bike and could dress in shorts and T-shirt, but it was still miserable. We went to a botanical garden that had a greenhouse set up to reproduce rain forest conditions and the only difference between inside and out was that there was more wind outside.

Got off the plane in San Francisco to mid-70's and it felt cold.

Are we talking geography here.
Its very hard to please mother nature. Rain, snow, hot sun or windy we just have to deal with it. A hair dryer I'm aware of but my wife always reminds me do go into the convection oven the last time we shrunk the kids :histerica

There once was an Eskimo spraying in front of his home with cans of green paint. His visiting relative from the lower 48 asked why. His response "it is too frigid up her to get my grass to grow" :histerica :histerica
ride safe :bmw:

You do get acustomed to the heat. Cool vests can help a lot on longer rides. I change my windshield to a Cee Bailey Ralley Sport Shield during the summer months. The RT affords so much wind protection that if I leave my larger Cee Bailey on I get absolutely no breeze at all and that is definately not good!

We either put up with the heat or don't ride during the summer. We usually plan on half day rides and get started early. I commute to work on the RT pretty often and can put up with it for the 40 minute ride home. The temp was 107 degrees F on the way home yesterday.

For this summer max I have seen was 93 F/34 C
And I was near coma that day.

For me perfect riding temp is ~ 60 - 65 F

But globally, I prefer to live in a country where we see real winters with - 20 F better than country, where summer brings 105 F

I have a Calsci XL. I wish I had the stocker right now. As far as commuting goes, I'll have to get a job first. :rolleyes:

Yeah, but three hours ride and I am in the mountains at over 8000' ,if I want winter. Thing is, even though I used to love snow, I have learned to hate it. Arthritis will do that.
