Virgin trip from Tucson to Big Bear last July....

Here's a photo from a 3 day trip I made last July from home base in Tucson to Big Bear. Temp was 105 when I departed Tucson at 5 in the afternoon and 37 when I rode into Big Bear around 1 the next morning. Thank god for a quick look at the weather before departing..... But the real kicker was the ride in 113 degree heat in the I-10 corridor from Joshua Tree to Phoenix on the way back. Yes, it is possible to fall asleep in the saddle. Yes, I emptied my camel back every gas stop.
