The Igloos are going to melt!

Over the past few weeks we have had a lot of heat and humidity (with bouts of rain and extreme weather) which in turn makes riding in full leathers almost unbearable. I really feel for you guys down south...... See, it does get hot in TO even if itís only for 3 months.

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: The Igloos are going to melt!

That's one thing I could never handle out there was that disgusting choking muggy humidity. When it's 36 degrees (maybe 1 day a year) in Calgary it doesn't feel nearly as hot.

And then there's this asshole...

You're gonna have to work the lumberjack and/or mountie nightshift to make up for all that lost igloo equity.

Re: The Igloos are going to melt!

I don't even want to talk about it...
I was about to get into my convection oven last night while I was cooking a pizza just to cool down a bit...

ONE.

Re: The Igloos are going to melt!



Cooler down here in the high desert. 97 with a realfeel of 90. Seems like the weather we had for the last two weeks is moving on east.

100 but the humidity is only 35% so it is not that bad.

35%!!!!! That sucks for high temps... usually in the single digits here when it's hot...We start complaining when it's in the teens and in the 20s is high during the heat of the day... For example...it's 93 and 11%RH currently at 2PM. But that 35% is better than the farking 70-80% we'd get in MN when it was hot.

Re: The Igloos are going to melt!

Heat Index for today is well over 110 F.

I'm putting on my gear and going for a ride. Now where are my flip-flops again?

just gives you a head start on sweating you girl


FWIW we get far worse on many days. The ones around 90 with 60% will kick your tail
