Nothing will stop heat stroke when you're parked (bike shut off since nobody is actually moving) on 45 traffic behind an accident. Not all situations are known prior to turning the key in the morning.

All I'm saying is filtering CAN BE the safest route. Usually not but sometimes it is. Play the cards you're dealt.
Like I said, I'm not arguing for or against LS, just taking exception to your justification. NOBODY should ever find themselves, all of a sudden, faced with the choice between LS and certain death from Heat stroke. If you do, you are either dumb as a rock or a very poor planner. I check weather every morning. Sometimes I get caught by rain, one time by sleet, but I have never left the house not knowing whether I'm gonna risk death by heat stroke.

HS football coach don't get away by claiming ignorance, but I suppose you could do so posthumously.

"Officer, I had to go 65mph in a 25 to cool off, or else I's gone die!" Is about as good an excuse as being forced to LS.

Heat stroke does not = death.

Usually you just get really ****ing sick.

First, you may notice some nausea. Yea, almost like you neet to puke. Strange, maybe it was all that booze yesterday or that chineese you had for lunch. and wow is it hot today....then maybe you notice strange my arms are going numb...then why am I shivering it's 100 degrees outside. Oh **** me this is what urban wrote about, a whadoyacallit, a heat stroke.

Now your brain is not working write, it's too hot. You get pretty stupid. You know you need to cool off, but insted you keep your jacket on once you get inside. Maybe you drink some water, and vomit it all up. Maybe your unconsious in your office at Chevron and no one calls for help. Maybe 5 hours later you can stand up and manage to ride home, where your wife takes your temp and you are still over 101*. She puts you in a cold shower, afterword you pass out in bed for about 18 hours and don't eat for another 24.
--------------

The other time (1st) I was changing a flat tire on my truck after taking MSF in august. That time, all I noticed was I felt cold, finsihed the tire, got home and passed out on the couch for about 14 hours.

^ Winner winner chicken dinner.

Can't always see it coming or predict traffic conditions. Heat stroke is just one of those things that can happen, the amount of water you drink has little to do with it. When the BRAIN overheats everything goes nuts.

Please, please, please whoever reads this. Do NOT try to rush anywhere if you get hit with heat stroke. Pull over, find cover, and re-hydrate with electrolytes as you rest. Be safe, arrive alive.

That's all folks. Carry on.

There is always the option of NOT riding on a hot day. We all make choices.

My riding season is coming to an end soon. No biggie. Day riding fun can be had in another couple three months. But that's just me.

If you must ride... do what you need to do to stay safe. I agree.

cool shower is best, but you could find a garden hose and run cool water over your body.

I agree that a lot of people will be fine with a bike splitting past them in slow traffic, there will always be some that just hates the fact that you can go and he can't.

Back when hurricane rita or ike or whatever it was, the one where traffic was jacked up with all the evacuees. My fiancee was stuck in that traffic for a little over 28 hours. I made a couple trips down and back with food and water for her on the bike. Returning north to Conroe I would ride the shoulder. No problems except for one trip. A dude having seen me pass him a few times while he was stuck got frustrated, cranked his wheel and tried to smash me into a guard rail. he missed and just dinged up his front corner a bit. I pause long enough to make it clear I was laughing at him, fly the bird, and continue home.
