That is funny but it was just a tad extreme. Wonder what he was thinking in the last few miles to his home?

Knowing him and what he probably went home to (his wife hated motorcycles because someone she knew died on one), he most likely was thinking about extending his trip.

He's done it a dozen times. Maybe a Divine Providence gave him that incredible set of skill and reflexes.

Re: Interesting

Look at the 95 column. So when it's really hot increasing your speed raises the chill temp? But when it's colder increasing your speed lowers the chill temp?

Could be true lol, last summer on a gravel road ride, it was right at a 100, it felt worse on my face with shield up getting air than putting it down. It was like a hair dryer blowing on my face. Either extreme isn't much fun to me, but I am a wussy.

Yes I guess same reason I don't like mesh gear, uncomfortable in hot temps due to the blast.

There's a thread on TWT about the effects of temperature and speed. Seem to recall that once the temps reach a certain point speed only makes the temps feel worse.
