A week ago I drove from El Paso to Houston. It not only managed to get hotter as I approached Houston, but the increased humidity makes it harder for your sweat to evaporate, and makes you feel worse. The only good thing is that staying on the highway keeps the wind on you. Despite my camelbak, when I stopped for border patrol, and for fuel, I felt like I was going to fall out. I hung around the convenience stores more and more. The nice thing is, the further east you go, the more people believe in the glories of refrigerated air.

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.
You don't look too happy.
