450 miles today. About 350 of those in 90-100F heat. It broke close to my destination due to rain, which I missed - came in behind the front. I was rewarded with this view from my campsite.

Hybrid travel – motorcycle to/from the airport
Twice this year I've had air travel where rides weren't easily available on the home end so I took the bike.
