Guys, I need your help

I am pretty sick, I had a fever of 101 an hour after taking 650mg of Tylenol. Drewpy and Trip are up at the Dragon, and I am 20 minutes away.

Should I ride or not?

Yes of course. But only if you take a muscle relaxer first! If you have any idea at all that you won't be 100% don't ride. Regardless of fever, double vision, maybe just pissed off, distracted, bad aura, superstitious premonition...If your not able to focus on the bike and task at hand, don't even lift the kickstand...

at 103 brain damage starts... if you have a temp of 101 you should consider the hospital... if it progresses to 103 get to the ER... that's considered a High Grade Fever and can cause brain damage.

Depends... do you feel woozy and nautious when you stand/walk/move?
Then no.

If you feel fine other than being hot... go for it you panzy.

Ahh, I wouldn't. Its not worth it.. especially there, where you aren't going to be just cruisin up the street, but in a place where it takes 100% mental concentration to not fall off a mountain... And if you do that, it will be a while before you get to ride again! Its not worth it IMHO

Went to the doctor this morning, he didn't seem too concerned about the 101 temp... curious.

I'm making spaghetti, and playing Halo 3, instead of riding.

Anyone wanna get a beat down?

good choice. you cant kill yourself going off a cliff if you're sitting on your azz in the living room. much harder to get hurt there than on two wheels.

I think it is too late to worry about that

No beat down, But I'm glad you decided not to ride... With the helmet on, you might have made it to the 103 mark!!

drink plenty of liquids and let the body rest. most likely the body is fighting off an infection. excerting yourself may weaken your immune system.

be sure to be on the bottom during sex and avoid masterbating...

101 is nothing to worry about. 104 - 105...then you go to the hospital. If you can, let the fever run for a bit. Fevers are one of the ways your body tries fight infection.

I wouldn't be riding, especially the Dragon but that is me.

103 sets off red flags...
104, you get dumped in ice water
105, notify next of kin...

103 definitely set off red flags
104 - dump in ice water only if you want to go into convulsions
105 - need antibiotic and diagnosis but not necessary to notify next of kin, not by a long shot.
