109 Degrees North Texas

Coming home from work 4 o'clock this afternoon. 109 on the pavement. Decided awhile back to go ATGATT. Not too awful as long as you can keep moving. Anyone here have any hot weather tips?

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

PLENTY of water...... Very easy to dehydrate in this hot weather.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Talking Tx. heat

I've found that if you wet a t-shirt and wear it under a mesh riding jacket gives some relief,and ditto on the drinking water.Myself I'm heading to the Colorado Rockies for a week of riding the jeep trails and mining roads to get some relief from the heat here in East Tx.

I watched this survival show where someone urinated on his shirt and wrapped it around his head. After adjusting the urinated t-shirt with his bare hands he picked hs nose. I think the heat had already got to him.
