Today, it finally felt like Fall. We've been lucky as we've had a warm September and the riding has been good. This morning started off with promise: sunny skies, cool temps; perfect for a day on the road. But as the day progressed, rain rolled in, along with the winds, and the conditions changed hour to hour. Still, three of us headed out, and stopped at the usual coffee haunt. Not much action going on there; rather quiet as we were the only ones on bikes. We took the straight route home, and within 15 minutes of pulling into the garage, a thunderstorm rolled in. Thinking I had timed my return just about perfectly, another half hour passed and the sun was out again. What can you do?
Yep, it's way up there in the Arrowhead. For those of you who don't know what that is; it's the pointy area of northern Minnesota along Lake Superior. And there is a shit ton of gravel, fire roads, single track - and thanks to a lot of rain -a lot of mud and puddles. Fun as hell? Ya, you betcha. Am I tired this Sunday eve? Ya, you betcha. A good time was had by all.
