I know my top number now 101 here today. Can't it can't do any more than that- guess I'm a wimp! I went out about 20 miles and had to come home for the air. D

It was hot today, but I'm just coming off a bout of pneumonia caught during my vacation and I needed to get out there and ride for the first time in two weeks, so I didn't care how hot it was.

rode 190 miles in mid 90 degree temps here if central florida and it was humid hot but i bought one of the cooling vest that you soak in water and even though I was skeptical it actually worked. Your shirt does get wet but i figured my shirt was going to get wet with sweat anyways. It actually made the ride enjoyable.

Signed up to demo ride the 2012 Goldwing Friday at Wing Ding, checked temp on my phone at 100*f and outside air temp on the bike was reading 122* when I got on. Didn't watch the outside temp after getting rolling. Felt sorry for the factory riders that were wearing full gear taking all of us around town in that heat
