Hi BillyRay.... welcome to Orange world ;) ....... seen on the news what terrible weather UK and US riders are sheltering from....... hot here but can still ride, even if very sweaty (just don't stop..... :lol: ). Suggest emigrate to New Zealand and sponge a beer off DaveNZ..... ;) :lol:

Haha doesn’t sound like a bad idea...

Just been out for an hour, absolutely love it...had one out on a 1/2 day demo but didn’t really use the quick shifter, makes riding it absolutely effortless... left it in rain mode as the roads were a bit greasy so haven’t had the full pleasure of the beast but I’m sure there will be plenty of time for that.... the heated seat is a nice touch 👍🏼

:lol: :lol: ......we've had heated seats this weekend.........fekin hot and humid on Sat....phew 34c and felt like 90% humidity and the obligatory thunder storm..... Record hot temp on Sunday (it was over 34C at 8.30am and peaked at 38C in the arvo....fuk it was hot in the sun....real 'oven hot' stuff!) - luckily zero humidity ;)

Bugger me, I nearly died mowing the grass.......hah, and I thought it was too hot to mow previous weekend, so I had to get it done or risk getting lost trying to find the front door... :roll:

A magnificent cool change blew through about 4pm.....dropped 10C in a minute......ahhhhh, that's more like it :mrgreen:

KTM (and Honda) didn't get to go for a gallop......again....... just need better sleep so I can wake up early enough to get prepped and on the tarmac.......(noisy neighbours on Friday nights & warm nights with a fan on all night........tired...... :( ......) - roll on Autumn.......quickly now.....ya-hear 8-)

I’ll be honest I would find it unbearable in that heat, sure it’s nice to drink though to cool down ha ha 🍻 we’ve been averaging 2 degrees for last few weeks but should start to pick up as we approach feb...gonna try and get a few trips planned weather permitting...

Fancy scotload north coast 500 again this year ...not sure if many folk are from uk but definitely worthy of a look..
