Escaping the AZ Summer Malaise

This will be a short post. After being in Tucson 3 years, I have discovered a terrible malaise sets in after your 30th day of the year of temps over 100 degrees. However, there are escapes and they are only about an hour away. I headed off at 6am yesterday morning and it was already 89 degrees in Tucson. Mt. Lemmon offers a tremendous view, 30 degree cooler temps, not to mention WORLD CLASS twisties.

Nice getaway HTM!

We have been riding the Bradshaws but they are not much cooler.

Hope to ride with you soon.

Ya, but not many bites at this point. Such an awesome all-purpose bike too. The Kalifornia guys put too much bad mojo with their negativity about getting it plated in the Land of Oz. Oh well...as FastPhil says..."Ride On".

It is a Trail Tech. They come in 2 flavors, HID and Halogen. That is a Halogen and it super easy to put on and take off. Uses pipe bands to hold to the fork legs.
