Here is another worthwhile article that Rodney found in the GWRRA newsletter:
Heat related illnesses are extremely dangerous. The symptoms and causes are gradual and can accelerate to the point that can cause your body organs to function improperly. The biggest cause of heat related illness is dehydration. Without the proper amount of fluids and salt, vital organs like the kidneys, brain, and heart cannot function. Your blood thickens and your heart pumps much harder to circulate blood throughout the body.
Our monthly 2nd Sunday Breakfast in Prescott created us with some welcome 75 degree temperatures along with some clouds in the sky! So much better than the 112 degrees currently in Buckeye! The weather forecast all week called for a 40% chance of rain up north. Monsoon season in Arizona is upon us!
Rodney found this article in the GWRRA newsletter that he thought should be posted here especially with the hot summer months upon us.
This month we are going to focus on the three most important things on the bike. The two contacts (tires) and the one under the helmet. Everything we do rides on the tires. We need to train ourselves on the importance of checking and maintaining our tires. Protection against avoidable breakdowns and crashes, improved vehicle handling, better fuel economy, and increased tire life. Just a few reasons to check your tire pressure EVERY day.
Only three of us braved the late June Phoenix heat on motorcycles while the rest of us showed up their air-conditioned vehicles. Talk about cheating! But you really can’t blame them can you? This month’s dinner was held at Delux Burgers in the Biltmore Area of Phoenix.

Our ride started bright and early at GO AZ Motorcycles in Scottsdale at 7:00 AM. Luckily, the temperatures were still cool at this early hour. After brief hellos, coffee, doughnuts and a rider’s meeting, we were off towards Superior, AZ where the temperatures were even cooler!
