    Wear full leathers and take the route up thru the hard coal (PA61) to US11 at Shamokin Dam so you can average about 30 mph and sit at the maximum number of stop lights.

    When the weather is like this, we know why the gods created Canada........

    So much for the old idea that you want the main highway to run thru the business district. In today's world, a lasting memory of traffic congestion is a great excuse for never stopping or returning. However, the Toyota dealer in Sunbury offers great prices.

    Haven't needed socks since we left VA. Can't last though.

    FINALLY warming up! I did go out for a ride today (highest I saw was 97F in NJ).. but I'm actually quite comfortable wearing my 'stitch with all the vents open. I'm a person who likes warm and hates cold. Been known to put on heated gear if it drops below 70F (brrrr!).. Big trick - keep moving and don't ride an RT.

    You probably won't believe me, but right now in Canyon, Texas it is 66 degrees F. The high today was around 78. The high yesterday was 76 which set a record for the coolest high on that day. Last week we were in the 100's. Got to love this part of the country!

    Feels good!

    I've been working long hours in a darkened, fully air conditioned arena. It's quite like a giant ice box. The heat, when I finally come out in late evening, actually feels great!

    Yow! Mid 80s are about the most I tolerate that way. Weather like we're having now is a white Joe Rocket Phoenix 5, Diamond Gusset or Draggin jeans, Icon Pursuit perforated gloves, Arai XC RAM open face helmet and BMW Airflow boots for me.

    You need a nice K75............the air flow channeled thru the radiator and under the gas tank provides a nice warming sensation for your lower abdomen.

    My wife stays ticked off as I continue to hang(back in the woods where only us can see them!) my sweaty T's on the back porch railing...
    My chickens are strutting around with their wings held high & beaks open gasping for air!
