You got me on that one.

There IS about 2 or 3 weeks, usually in Aug, where you really don't want to spend the entire day on the bike.

When it hit's 105, with the humidity at 5,000%...

(That's when I take the jet ski to the beach...)

Ha Ha...jet ski, good choice. I lived in Dallas for 3 years and had a 73 500 Kaw in the early 1980's. Over 30 days in a row of over 100 degrees. I still rode and baked. Little more humid towards Houston than Dallas though.

It really was in the mid 80's yesterday.

About noon yesterday, a friend called me up, said he was hosting a chilli-cook off and would I come be a judge.

Shoot yea. Free chilli.

Since it was such a nice day, I put the back seat on the bike, and the misses and I rode on over.

About 5, the wife and I headed (on the bike) a few towns over, were they was having a huge X-mas parade and hung out with some friends until almost 9.

We didn't feel like going home, soo. We went bar hopping.

On the bike.

On Dec 1st.

We got home around 1pm, and it was still in the 70's.

Y'all can keep y'alls snow.

I'll stay here in the south.
