SO my bike decided it wasn't going to run today... halfway to work. I had to pedal my ass 4 miles in 120 degrees. NOT FUN. It kept jerking violently and wouldn't stay running for more than 30 seconds. Gotta investigate it when I get off work.
Even as a Desert Rat I can admit it was uncomfortable yesterday. Even last night at the races it was pretty bad. I know one driver went to the hospital for heat exhaustion. Those nomex suits don't breath very well.
I was smart enough to take me a tub of lemon Eegee's to help keep the crew cool.
i'll admit, it was a bit hot when i rode home yesterday.
I don't think the engine liked it too much as it seemed to be pinging a bit and revving by it's self by the time i got home. (probably got hot enough that it didn't need the spark plug to ignite the fuel)
They see me rollin'
