A 3/4 helmet. Wow, Blues. I'm kind of surprised.blues2cruise wrote:I also bought a 3/4 helmet and wore it home. It sure did feel nice having the breeze on my face.
I agree that the full face offers more safety....when I go on the highway I'll be wearing the full face.jstark47 wrote:A 3/4 helmet. Wow, Blues. I'm kind of surprised.blues2cruise wrote:I also bought a 3/4 helmet and wore it home. It sure did feel nice having the breeze on my face.
I used to own one, but it is long gone. I like having that chin & jaw protection. Well, for sure you'll have more ventilation. It was hot as hell here today, I gave up riding after being out this morning - too hot to have all the gear on. Even my summer mesh stuff.
Yep. And if you're riding that Trophy 1200 you bought, those things are like nuclear blast furnaces on hot days. I've been carpooling with a friend in recent weeks but even if I weren't, I would have used the car Monday-Thursday last week. I won't ride without the gear, and some days it's so hot the gear is just too much.ceemes wrote:.....it feels like I am riding into a blast furnace.

My turn was today, did it in close to the same driving time, just longer stops to get out of ugly traffic...blues2cruise wrote:I rode home from Osoyoos today. I made good time because of being the middle day of a long weekend. Traffic was light most of the way.
Five and a half hours...that included a fuel stop and a lunch stop and a couple of quick photo stops....and travelling at or under the speed limit.
I use to..............until I stopped giving a "poo poo"................now I am sitting back waiting for disaster to befall on those smug basstards.blues2cruise wrote:It was raining so hard that the road that passes by my townhouse complex was flooding.

So...I went in got my rake....I found the drains and cleared out all the fallen leaves.....I walked up the street to find the next drain and cleared it out..it didn't take long for the water to run like rapids and clear the road.
Do you ever feel like you are the only person who gives a dodo about your neighbourhood?
