Drink Plenty of Water This Weekend

Highs are in the 103 to 106 range this weekend, that is without the heat index. Stay hydrated, especially those heading to the track.

Werd, I got heat exhaustion at MSRH last Saturday. Make sure to start hydrating yourself at least a day before.

This summer is killer. I'll be in the Northeast this weekend for a wedding. I'm really looking forward to the break from 100 degree highs. It's going to be a crisp 81 for a high and a absolutely frigid(in relation to here) 61 degrees for a low. I hope to ride my friends' 00 RC51 and Duc 900SS while I'm up there.

I ride in full black leathers/track gear on the street frequently, even in the 100 degree weather and in rush hour traffic. Only recently did I start to actually use the HOV lanes when available. Personally, while I hate the heat, I think doing trackdays in the heat is better than the cold or even mild...but this heat is a bit too much, and it's way too dry outside which leads to a deceiving dehydration.

Here I am @ 2WheelToyz a few days ago getting my rear tire replaced. Hot as fk outside in full leathers lol

Yeah don't be like me and drink too much water and flush out all the minerals/salts/electrolytes. Cramps suck.

There was a summer not too long ago where we had about 3-4 weeks of straight 100+ degree weather (with near or at 110 degrees on somedays), although I don't think it was as hot with the heat index and it definently wasn't as dry.

I think they're talking about hyperthermia not hypothermia.

once you get above 105 degrees, goes downhill real fast, including judgement, and you may FEEL COLD

very hard to recognise the first time

two types, one form actually burning energy so much that body gets hot

and other you body just gets too hot form environment, even you are just sitting there

or a combo

zipping up in some PPE like leather thats not perfed is a good way to get it

remember that if the outside air temperature is above 98 (normal body temp), the only wait you can maintain that is by sweating (evaporation of water draws heat from the body).
Given how much you sweat at TD, and how hot it will be, sweating alone may not be enough to keep cool. You gotta place a COLD moist towel or drench your head in cold water, whatever COLD medium there is.
