I got out and about hunting for scoreable bonii for next weekend's rally.  Eliminated a few potentials and found a couple I didn't have listed.  Headed back out tomorrow to verify the second half of my route and bonii.  I'll be riding the Halloween Horror rally route Friday, the 13th at night for max scoring.

Looks like you have the same colors we do, Ed. Green and brown.

Headed out shortly.  Gotta pick up a small pumpkin, then off to Detroit to start a 10 hour scavenger hunt.  Finishing about midnight in Lansing.  Cemeteries, crypts and haunted stuff, oh my!

Yeah, not so much.  Traffic into downtown Detroit was screwed.  I can ride it early tomorrow instead.

I did mine over last winter. May not look factory but a whole lot cheaper.  New calipers to.

Rode Saturday in all the rains. Rain gear leaked in places, first time, I am disappointed, but picked up more Nikwax, next will be replacements, It was expressway driving and water was everywhere.
Dried it all out and rode this morning, 41° but no rain.

I rode to the hardware store.
It was a nice 2 hr ride.
And during the ride to the store, I realized I could do what I need w/o buying anything new.

Disappointed in how short the video was. I was hoping for some nice side WFO view fly-bys, at least.

36 degrees going in for the morning commute with a minute or two of brief, light snow.  The ride home is the last one for me this year.  A poor year mileage wise (my worst in a decade) but that was to be expected with a new daughter born this year.  The later is more important and makes me happier.   :)

Is that your bike? I've always had a soft spot for those big twin Suzukis.
