Hot as Balls...

I haven't been riding much the last few days. The average temp has been around 97º with a heat index of 105º and higher.

I'm not even riding to work because it's just miserable riding weather.

I see a lot of weekend riders wearing shorts going down the road. It's dangerous enough riding with out a jacket & a short sleeve shirt. But shorts. Not only do you have to be aware of pipe burns on your legs the road rash if you get dumped will just shred your legs all up.

It's just plain stupid to ride in shorts. I guess some will have to learn the hard way.

I saw one guy do just that. He burned the inside of his leg on the pipe header and promptly dropped his bike when he reacted to the burn.
