It has been high 80’s to low 90’s for the last week and a half here in Michigan. With our normal high humidity it is downright uncomfortable . I have been riding in the morning and evening but middays are out for. right now

92 here today and took a 200 mile ride. Still ATGATT full black leathers for me. Was rather comfortable all day until 4 HD riders and their wives walked past my bike and one of the guys yells out “How would you like to ride on that POS and they all laughed. Oh well, I guess a Gold Wing is not for everyone.

I've lived in Vegas since 2012 and this spring and beginning of summer have been nothing short of amazing.

I've owned 3 Harleys and 2 Hondas and I loved them all. Still loving on my two Hondas.

Regardless of what you ride, we ride. That's what matters. Riders, bikers, whatever you call yourself, we need to stick together. No need for this kind of attitude.

100’s here and our summer afternoon rainy season is just starting.

We had a great spring early summer this year.

I trailered our bikes up to Colorado for a week in early June. Great time.

My local riding will be restricted to mornings and evenings until fall.

I would say their attitude defines who they are.

A little windy on and off, but temps in the 70's and 80's. Should be close to 90 next weekend.

Hot and getting hotter. Low to mid 90's so far. When it hits mid 90's then the wet vests are thrown in ice water for about 2 minutes. We then slap on the vests, put the billfold and cell phone in the trunk, pull on the riding jacket, gloves, all the other ATGATT and head on down the road. About an hour and half later we repeat and head on down the road again. We just wanna ride!!!!:grin2:

No doubt!

Came back to Texas from Colorado on the 4th. Dealing with the heat on my ride up on the 29th 101F. I decided to do a night ride home. Left Dalheart TX 9:00 PM arrived home 4:30 AM. Highest temp a pleasant 82F. One way to avoid the heat. Took a day or so to recover but the night ride was fun.

Great trip, had the pleasure to meet up with 1096dad. Already thinking about next year. Gunnison - Montrose area is GREAT!

High 80s to low 90s here, with frequent PM showers. Works for me. Still ATGATT (Darien) but must stay hydrated. Must admit I am wimping out in older age, and only good to about 100, but that's not likely in these parts.

Enjoy! All too soon, we'll be whining about the cool/cold weather.
