Fall Season...

Heads-up people. The 'fall season' is once again upon us. Please be careful, those wet leaves are a disaster waiting for a place to happen.

I have had to step it down a little here in WI due to the falling foilage. The cool evenings and mornings make for some damp rides. Thanks for the heads up Mike.

Wet leaves, leaf peepin' cage-drivin' seniors, and the deer rut. All equally dangerous!

I wish I had to worry about leaves. It just snow this morning where I live!

It's even worse for those of us who like to go dual-sporting. Wet or dry, leaves on the trails suck. I can't count how many times I've been "surprised" by a rock, hole, or some branch hidden under the leaves. Mike's advice is valuable on or off the road, wet or dry.

I know that certain KTM's with new tires don't like wet leaves and cold asphalt!

No more tank tops...

Fewer injuries occur from falls as more folks bundle up for seasonal cooler temps.

Fall?! Heck, it is in the 80's here! Someone forgot to tell Mother Nature it's October!

I'll bet if you put a trash bag on your back & go through that mess at 165mph, the vacuum behind you will pull all those leaves into the bag!
