Sure. Every Saturday since our meet and greet. The highest temp was 94*f starting out, but we rode straight to the hills where temps dropped to the low 80's. Yesterday was a cool 90F leaving out at 4pm, and 76F coming home at 8pm. Our local group rides to eat somewhere every Saturday that it's not raining.

Yesterday (Saturday), my neighbor and his wife on their wing and my wife and I on our wing, left Huntsville, Al. at 7:30am and rode over to Clarksdale, MS., where we went to the blues museum and then to Ground Zero where we had burgers and a few cold ones. It was a blasting hot ride....I enjoyed the first 3 hours...after that it got friggin HOT...!!

We spent the night at the Hampton Inn, in Clarksdale, and this morning, we left there at 5:30am and rode back to Huntsville arriving at noon.

June 1st thru June 9th Fayborg, me and 2 others rode 4450+ miles from Northern IL to AZ via MO, AR, OK, TX, NM, AZ, UT, CO, NE, IA and IL, Most days were in the 90s; AZ 97 and it rained 2 days of the 3 days we were there...:? Frustrated by washed out roads and impending t-storms we rode home 850+ miles on the last day thru CO, NE, IA and IL where the heat index was 105+ most of the way. Beat the chit out sitting home and wishing it was 60... :lol:

It's not so much the high temps that get you down.....it's the high humidity that's making those temps seem extra hot. I've been having to soak a T-shirt in cool water before and during mowing the grass just to keep from heat stroke.
