While a majority of the rest of the country that is not in desert climate is rejoicing riding their motorcycles in summer weather, I’ve been saddened by the fact that I’ve had to sparsely ride my machine because of the intense Arizona heat.
Last week it got up to 119 degrees fahrenheit. Sure it’s a dry heat but that’s just not fun. I won’t join into detail about riding a motorcycle in the summer in Phoenix because I’m assuming my audience are riders and can already relate but to summarize: it’s bad.
So for the two people who actually read this blog and were wondering why I haven’t posted much if anything in the last several months, the sun and the summer are the simple reasons. It’s too damn hot to ride and when I do get out on the bike, it’s at night simply to satisfy my withdrawals from riding. Around the block here, quick errand there, but nothing of significance or consequence. So when you’re typically hating the rain or cold I’m out on the bike enjoying desert weather but not now. Now the tables are turned and I envy you. Enjoy your riding, folks. Take care and be safe. I’ll be right there with you in a few months.
