Good Morning. Are you out riding in this heat> It is 90's here. The city is covered in smoke. The minute we opened the garage door the smoke hit us in the face. Forest fires all around us burned thousands of acres .NO rain. We might get some Driday. My BG was 114. I get the scond set of SUPARTZ in my kknees Tuesday. I think it is helping. I hope you are in good control biking and having a great day. I care. Reed
