Something bad happened and they turned back (they are next to Jettie). I hope those on board are all okay.

I hope the men on the Restive are doing OK.

Never enough, bruv!

So, Garmin tells me it got to 113F on my ride today. If that happened, I am super human. But, I know the temp topped out this morning at 98F (hot enough). Where did Garmin come up with that?

WhyFi 06-18-22 04:09 PM

Had a good ~80 mile ride with some of the guys. Beautiful weather for it, though a tad windy.

E-bikes were a theme. In the 100 yards that we were on a bike path, we witnessed an older guy go down hard, supposedly dislocating his shoulder. We stopped and helped and he had his wife come fetch him. Details are unclear, but it seems as if he crashed while avoiding a couple of my guys as they slowed to turn right at an intersection (with a stop sign for the trail users). I think that he was bombing along, full throttle; he said that he didn't think that my guys were going to stop/slow. :rolleyes:

Myself and one other guy peeled off and rode back together. On one stretch, a guy on an e-bike, sitting in the draft of a Jeep, slipped by us. He lost the draft but kept up his effort and the assist, creak-creak-creaking along at a good clip. My friend and I traded pulls, tracked him down and dropped him. Forgot to give him the look. :(

It has a temp sensor; roads get hot.

Hadn't though of that. Almost the whole ride was on country streets with no shade, and I mean no shade. Wouldn’t be surprised if the tarmac generated that much heat.

Got pulled over just south of Brady (of course), TX. The cop was going the other way and pulled me over for speeding... 78 in a 70, with no radar gun, just an eyeball that I "looked fast" so he gave me a warning. Then he decided I was jittery while talking, and having said I came from Colorado probably had a bunch of weed on me and wanted to search the car. He was quite surprised that someone nervous at being pulled over was in fact a rather boring square.

:notamused:

Mojo31 06-18-22 04:18 PM

There were about 1,000 riders at the event this morning, and I saw at least 100 ebikes.

You let him search? You told him you were coming from Colorado? SMFH. Bad client. 🤔

I'm sure it would have gone swimmingly if I had said no.

He would never know. Tell him you were heading home from Amarillo. They have no right to ask. And they have no right to search your car without probable cause. It was a ******** stop.

If you told him no search because he didn’t have probable cause to search your car, he would not have pushed it. Driving back from Colorado is not probable cause. Should have said, let me call my lawyer and ask him. That would have likely ended it.

What? You're suggesting the constabulary might overstep their authority? Pshaw! Why, the very idea! ;)

Mojo31 06-18-22 04:41 PM

Brady, TX is in the heart of redneck cops. F those authoritarian a-holes.

Mojo31 06-18-22 04:42 PM

Now, if Bug was methhead twitchy, then maybe we have a different convo.

Yeah, I almost never look at the temp reads from my rides, but when I do, there are always a handful of readings way higher than the ambient.

I assume that this is one of those instances where you could just ask, "am I free to go?" and GTFO? Sounds like there's no grounds fer nuthin'.

I'm no tri-guy but it's 100+ degrees here and a 30+ mile ride might be 3 water bottles, not 2.

Convince me I don't need the water or give me a rec on what under the back seat water bottle holder is a good deal.

Back pocket.

You are correct; only thing that remotely makes sense is mace and that's for country dogs that are already eating you.

I need to just carry around a couple of business cards for some local defense lawyer for times like these; 'this guy likes to answer questions, call him'.

always reminds me of the Dave chappelle skit which I'm pretty sure is a COC violation for posting, so i won't. :)

50 years ago a friend was pulled over in Plano and arrested on some BS. Before the kangaroo court they cut his hair.

big john 06-18-22 05:52 PM

I had a really fun ride today. I was reluctant to go to the club and almost went somewhere alone but a couple friends talked me into it. There were about 25 riders including 6 women. Nice day and it reminded me of the old days.
