    Cochise College is where I got my A&P as well as my Associates degree. Funny to get that one after I already have a BS and a MA. Not a bad little campus but the area around it is pretty dusty and boring.

    My R1200S ran nice and cool yesterday for 7 hours while I tooled around some ~400 miles in about 60-70 degrees and stayed quite cool. I expect from some 90 degree days it will run hotter, but just above half instead of just below.

    For you, mesh gear works well but allows for rapid dehydration, so drink lots of water while using it. Wetting shirts, undergarments and hair first (in 100+) works well, too.

    And in the heat, try to ride early or late, and if available, in shade or at night. I've been doing this kind of riding for years.
