just a reminder to those who will be riding make sure you bring water or stop and get water often the humidity will suck the water right out of you. 2-3 gallons of water daily is ideal especially with the gear we wear.

Warning signs of heat exhaustion include:

heavy sweating
paleness
muscle cramps
tiredness
weakness
dizziness
headache
nausea or vomiting
fainting




The skin may be cool and moist. The victim's pulse rate
will be fast and weak, and breathing will be fast and shallow. If
heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat
stroke, which is a medical emergency. Seek medical attention and call 911
immediately if symptoms are severe
Spoken as a well trained soldier should. You tell those damn civilians how it is Dave! :rant

Seriously, you guys be careful out there. Dave is 100% correct. The heat index will be CAT 5 which means HOT, DAMN HOT!

Consume at least 1 quart per hour if not more. It is very easy to become dehydrated on a bike because the swear evaporates quickly from your body while you are riding.

I would like to go, but I was very fortunate to be invited backstage at the Air Festival tomorrow and aviation is a lifelong passion of mine.

I sincerely hope that you will all have a great time while riding tomorrow. Please stay safe and enjoy!

Going to the Cards game on the Vulcan so I'm out. Did 300 miles today and will do another 250 or so tomorrow.

Have fun, be safe and remember to stay hydrated. It's going to be a hot SOB!

good seeing ya, dru thanks for stopping by the shop.

A guy from Vermont is riding through from OK to TN today so if you see a guy on a loaded down KTM 990 Adventure, his name is Matt and he is a pretty cool guy. Tell him "Dirk says hello" if you run into him.

Sounds good to me. I feel like I've adapted very well to the 650r for what little I've rode so far. I'm no expert of course, but I think I know were my limits stand, and I work on expanding them. The only thing is, my butt might not like me for a while, lol. But I'm getting used to longer trips now.

Btw, number is 22eight - two two 3 - three 245. AT&T. call or text. Tony (TJ).



EDIT: Got the cover, and its waterproof. I got the one that seemed to be the most durable and protective. I'll use it most while its at work, since I can't park in the shade anywhere, help protect it from fading and the environment :)

Well Id like to try and make it next time.

Few questions tho, what grade of fuel do you Normally put in your bike?
And does anyone ride at night often? And what is the best method that you use to remove the bugs? Just water and soft towel, a special cleaner?
Thanks!

Your bike is set to run on 87 octane fuel. It will run just fine on it.

Get a bottle of Plexus for your face shield on your helmet and the wind screen. Works well.
