A dream fulfilled

Rode out to Badwater this morning at 7, it was 35 already. Took Suzy B out
on the salt. The lowest, driest and hottest place on the western hemisphere
on my own bike and in the hottest days of the summer. That should extend my
"Man card" for a few years.

Last time I was here it was mid-december and I was sad I wasn't on a bike.
Call that dream fulfilled and scratch it of my "bucket list". Artist drive,
just like everything else, is as beautiful as I remember. The intense heat
just adds the real element to the experience - beautiful but deadly at the
same time.
