Nothing could possibly be any better than...

....sitting at a booth in the air-conditioned dining area of the popular local burger joint less than a foot away from your bike which is just on the other side of the window glass, enjoying a nice tastey frozen custard and knowing full well that in fifteen minutes or so you'll be back out there on your bike with several hours of daylight left just having the time of your life.

Life can be soooo nice.

Sounds like a winner to me... I started cramping last night and remembered I did not drink enough fluids during the day, so limped home and rode to work this morning. ?Does that count?

We had a similar experience after riding 40 miles (over 5,000 ft. of climbing) from Red Box to Grassy Hollow, sitting in the shade, sharing what food we'd brought in our jersey pockets and Camelback pockets, natural A/C via the cooler temps at high altitudes and some well placed clouds.

Or poping an Ice cold Corona Light with a slice of lime as you are looking at the faithful steed that just carried you for the last 4 hours on a hot muggy day.
