It’s that time of year again. Becky and I rode back yesterday from the Riding Into History vintage bike gathering in St Augustine. On the way home, the ambient temperature readout on Becky’s new VFR1200FD told her it hit 95 degrees as we rode through the Ocala forest. Our trip home was 4 hours in the Florida heat.
Every year starting about this time and for the next 4-5 months, all of us in Flatistan (central and south Florida) face this same challenge…the heat.
