Recently retired and moved to the Texas Hill Country with the dream of jumping on the bike whenever I wanted to and go for an enjoyable ride. Well, one thing is getting in the way, HEAT. I've learned anything around the 100 degree point is just to hot to enjoy. There's been a few times recently I'll walk out, put mesh jacket and helmet on, then take it all off and go back inside. So, what's your temp that you decide not to ride for pleasure?

i don't really get the question.
At what temperature threshold would you not prefer to ride in or not enjoy as much due to heat.

With that, you say you moved to the Texas hill country, do you ever ride Lime Creek Road around Lake Travis?
Haven't ventured that far north yet. I moved two months ago less than 10 miles south of Bandera on Lake Medina. I'm still exploring the roads around here. Always end up on at least one leg of the Twisted Sisters weekly.

Ok, yeah your still pretty far south west of Austin area. I haven’t ridden the sisters but hear it’s fun. LCR isn’t super long but has a ton of turns and hair pins running up the East side of lake Travis and is pretty fun to run. Corners range from 15-30mph posted speed limits and the highest straight is 45mph posted. A lot of cool super cars, bikes, sports cars ect go up there on the weekends to do some runs up and down. Lots of cool people and cool machines meet up in the area before they run. I took my hayabusa there this weekend and took my 1100 there last month. There’s also several photographers(real cool guys) that like to sit out there and take pics of the cars and bikes running up and down and they post them on Instagram. Here’s some from my run up there on my 1100.

Very nice, didn't realize we were that close to each other. Definitely need to get together when temps cool down some. Come on down anytime you want to ride the Twisted Sisters and other local runs. Best to come during weekdays if you can, gets pretty crowded during weekends, but if you ride early it's not to crowded.
