It's still too damn hot to ride.

Was feeling a bit stir crazy yesterday, and decided I'd take a ride today.
Just be aware.
The weatherman lies!

Passed a few flip-flop, tank top, shorts and no helmet guys today, and felt briefly envious.

I wanted to get a throttle boss for the Bully.
Our Suzuki dealer moved on a long time ago, so I stopped at HD, they didn't have the style I like, so I drove to the Indian dealer.
Gone. Packed up. No sign they were ever there.

I had a brief thought about maybe taking a test drive since I was going there.
So much for that.

They had a used Blue Injun at the HD.
20,000 miles, at $20k.
I'll bet those bastards only gave the guy 5 on trade.
I won't deal with those thieves ever again.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

about it being too hot
What kind of throttle boss are you looking for ? My affordable Indian came with them, so I don't need theone off my Bully. It's the black curved paddle looking one.

The one that came on my Vic is an older style Kuryakyn.
It's rubber.
They've changed it.
I saw their newer one yesterday at HD, and wasn't impressed.
I really don't want hard plastic.

Thanks for the offer.

I will make quick trips in shorts/t-shirt/no helmet... but riding in flip flops? Thats where I'm drawing the line.
I haven't even started mine in a month, I don't mind the heat, actually 100-110 and dry is my ideal temp, but the dam humidity gets me.
It's already Labor Day and subtly things are changing, soon enough I'll be complaining its too cold.
