Somedays you just wake up and decide to ride 350 miles before noon

Woke up this morning on a day off and decided to hit the road. No plan or prep at all just see where the road would take me. Thought I would just take a quick lap around town.... 350 miles later I was home for lunch after stopping for gas twice!

Ran into some guys from Norway who thought I was nuts, and they were not wrong...
They said the temp was 118deg at 9am.....

Ended up in Death Valley at 300 feet below sea level.

I can't even IMAGINE riding to Death Valley in the summer - it was about 42C (108F) on my patio yesterday, so I went inside, and had a glass of wine....

When I left the house just before 6am it was 90F already in Vegas. On the way out of Death Valley when I stopped to take the sea level picture the temp there was 123F so 51c....I took my jacket off. I was getting hot even at 85mph.

Side note I am loving having a modular helm. I was able to drink and drive!
