Supposed to be 113 today and 116+ the rest of the week here in Hot Havasu but we are livin' the dream; don'tchaknow!

It's all good though. By this time; everyone who lives here is aclimated to at least 110. For just about anyone else in the country, this would sound hot, but the dryness does make a huge difference.

Now, when Monsoon season hits here and we get some of the humidity from it; yeah... it sucks big time for those days when it's like that.

Monsoon hit me on the 101, rained for about 3 seconds but it was a nice while it lasted. Plan on a short ride in the morning while it is below 100.

Been there, done that while living in Scottsdale. :cool: Only then I was riding my '02 Goldwing on the 101. Lived just off Thunderbird on Sharon Drive then and still miss the place. Heat and all. ;) How is the rubberized black-top holding up on the 101 there? We sure did get a lot of noise off the 101 prior to them resurfacing it with the rubberized stuff. Was awesome quiet after that. cheers

Oh...it was 109 and HUMID yesterday. Dew points were in the high 70s, low 80s. UGH!! Today is 80 beautifully dry. :)

Colorado is getting hit hard with the wild fires and 65 mph hot wind and getting over 100 during the day. While that isn't hot here; it sure is there and make fighting those fires next to impossible. Hope they get some relief soon. One day a couple of weeks ago we got some of the smoke from a fire somewhere. Might have been Colorado.

I didn't know it got that hot in the Dakota's - ever. Yeah, with the humidity, that had to suck. Glad it didn't last long.

Low humidity here, but temps are going into the 105-107 degree range the next few days plus serious burn bans.

AZ weather is great in the mornings, my wife and I just road from Havasu to Vegas. We left just after day light and got there right before it started warming up it was a really nice ride.thumb up

The only negative thing to come out of the ride was my bike didn't help my case with my wife at all for pulling the trigger on a newer Vic. It ran perfect, smooth as can be on the hwy and we had so much room between us I'd forget she was back there.

We did stop in at A Team Motorcycles and looked at some bikes, got to see an Indian and a couple custom Vic's.
They were real friendly and tried more than once to get me to take a bike for a ride but I kept telling them they didn't have to sell me on victory I already know I want another one.:D
