The highest temperature in the state is often at a place just north of the Salton Sea called, appropriately, Thermal.

51 degrees , oh my god , unbeliviable , you are lucky that your motorcycle did not fail.

It's a Honda.
Liquid cooled. It ran hotter than usual, but never out of the safe range, even when climbing up the steep road out of the desert.
