    The R1200R isn't a hot bike at all compared to those..
    My R11Rs is the same story as your R1200R.................keep that heat away from my privates.........

    91or92 today, but tomorrow I'm on the road for a ride. SO and I love to be out there in the early morning. Mid 80s will seem like a cold wave. Maybe see you guys from Cumberland, York, Adams, Lancaster counties on the road tomorrow. George

    Good luck. I just did 30 from Fort Loudon to Breezeweek and was going to go to Everett and take 26 south, but the sky was absolutely black to the west. I jumped on the Turnpike to come back to Carlisle, and still had to put my rain suit on. And this weekend is Carlisle Bike Fest so town is full of middle aged guys dressed like a pirate and 25 year old future organ donors.

    We never had a drop between Altoona and Bellefonte on I-99. But, the temperature was ~88-degrees

    Hey--I stole them. After I typed that, I developed a further variation: middle aged guys dressed like pirates in chromed barcoloungers. Don't want to mention any specific brands!

    At this time of year we get the pay back for our winters. For the least three years, on my annual ride to the Kootenays in early July, I've had to layer up.

    On the road at 0800. Over to Getteysburg, to Hanover to Littlestown to Thurmont ,Past Camp David to Wayneyboro to the barn. Wonderful not to be melted into a puddle of sweat. Used to work at a place where the IT guy and his old lady would temp. tatoo and leather up every weekend and ride their bagger . Ran into them at a gas station once ,couldn't help but laugh and the guy never spoke to me again. Born to be mild. Around here the action for a certain 2 wheel set,and there is a bunch of them, is to ride from town up to the bar on top of the mountain overlooking McConnelsburg have a few beers and ride back to C-burg. Wow.

    I always work hard to hit that 20 MPH curve exactly right because I know I've got an audience.

    When coming up the back side I lean her to the left at the top and about half way through the turn, nail the throttle as hard as I have the nerve to and let em know who's your daddy. Like to scrape underside bits on the sweepers. It was on those sweepers on the Ft Loudon side I learned about trailing brake.

    Why not do the little road thru Cowans Gap? Wouldn't that be more fun?
