Summer is the time to go outside and play but not here. 100 degrees, 100% humidity and 100% chance of rain.:furious: Is it October yet?

Done ranting...:thumbup:

The Rest of the Year

It sucks to ride to work and arrive soaked; either from rain or from sweat!

I can't wait for the Fall riding season. Going on the FL Coast to Coast ride in late October, then Biketoberfest, then holiday rides Thanksgiving and Xmas. The Toy Run!

Mrs. Smoke and I were just commenting what a nice day it was to have a heat index of only 100.

Having lived in NE Ohio for several decades I'll take the summer heat anyday. One winter we went 30 days without seeing the sun and never breaking the freezing mark. While gun metal gray skies are soothing while you can't feel your toes, enough was enough already. :mrgreen:

Regardless of the time of year there isn't a day I can't ride in Florida.

I smelleth a Snowbird in the making.

I would say something about the Western North Carolina climate being the perfect blend of seasons with the winters short and the summers mild with excellent riding in embarrasing abundance, but our transplanted Floridian population quota has long been met. (Right after I moved up.)

For now, wearing adult diapers when riding allows you to better stave off dehydration by recycling sweat, and other bodily fluids.

Cheers,

Norm,

I won't be bringing any diapers, but my plans now are to hit NC in mid September or early October. I plan to auto train to Skyline Drive and down the BRP to Asheville. I've had to change dates two or three times already, but I damn sure plan to be there.

I've been down south 23 years now, rarely say 'pop' anymore and am comfortable with the phrase ya'll. No matter how many times I travel, I get misty when I see that Florida sign on the way home.:green_lol:

I hear Twisted Throttle has a special on handlebar risers since the adult diapers tend to make you sit up higher, especially when full.

I'm plum tired of the weather here in Va. Usually the mountains here aren't bad, but this year has been the exception. Might as well have spent the summer in Fla. Personally I think the weather in Blowing Rock NC is perfect.

Couldn't agree more. Ride to work in the morning isn't too bad but by quitting time you can count on the common afternoon deluge with its associated lightning somewhere along the 30 mile commute home. Midday is miserable due to heat and humidity so I try to avoid it if possible. Don't envy you northern folks your winters but by August I'm sick of the heat down here and ready for some cooler weather. Guess its just part of living in the Sunshine State...

That sounds like a great plan.
Keep in touch.

I just learned that the BMW Sport Touring board is having a Blue Ridge Reunion in Maggie Valley Oct. 1-3. Looks like I can work that in if I time things right.
