Crazy With The Heat!

Spit-tooey! A home made spitoon mounted to the frame of a recumbent trike! YIKES!

Check out that picture! Ta-back-kee product user has mounted a "spitoon" to his recumbent trike! Just when you think you've seen it all! Awesome!

Heat Advisory out for our area this Saturday and Sunday. You South-westerners may laugh, but ya'all don't have the hyoo-midda-tee that we have up here. 80% predicted humidity levels combined with upper 90 degree temps put the "it feels like" temperature at about 115-120 degrees! It won't let up at night either, like it does in the Southwest. By the way, if we didn't have the humidity, it would get into the hundred and teens anyway! The moisture keeps a lid on how hot the actual air temps get here. Anyway.....the point is, be VERY CAREFUL out there this weekend! Ride in the early am., or at night. Drink LOTS of fluids, (Specifically, water, water mixed with ELETE, water, and any electrolyte replacement, such as ELETE!) No kidding! This is the weather that KILLS! Check on your elderly neighbors! Stay cool!

Sounds like Ragbrai will be swelterin'! Ha ha! Glad we don't have to travel around with that circus anymore! We have been busy enough at the shop anyway! I thought Jeff was going to have a nervous breakdown. He was pretty bent about having to spend his Saturday with L.O.W. See, if your working with the chief, you are pretty much down about half a man as he tends to gab a little too long with the customers. It gets a little frustrating when people are standing three deep at the counter. I know how it goes! Oh well! Maybe the heat will keep things a little more sane for Mr. 24! It'll be hard to coax people outta the A/C tomorrow!

Early am. ride, before the heat sets in tomorrow! Ride safe! Be Smart!

Monkey Herder Mark, that is one of the most disgusting things i've seen on a bike. it beats out the blood splattered c'dale after that drunk guy got hit by a car.
