Question October Ridin'

Well, are there any planned riding events in October? I was wondering what the weather has been like and what it is forecast-ed to be, come the first week of October. Should be home then to enjoy a few rips with the F800GS!

Your thoughts....

Snuk out with Jr tonight for a quick blast down to Locals in Wasilla for hot wings, (root)beer, pizza, and football. Great ride but the tar-snakes on Lakeview are attention getters! ALMOST ate it hard! Jr was laughing so hard at the next stop I almost socked him!

Great ride and only a few sprinkles on the way home. Looking forward to squeezing in a few more rides if anyone is game.

I cannot believe I didn't hit Hatchers even once this year. I'm so ashamed....

Question It snowed didnt it.....

Just wondering if the snow is gone yet and what the latest prediction is for the next few weeks?

I will be home shortly and I was looking to get a few rides in.

Thanks for the updates.

Also, I asked Barb, but do any local dealers sell AUX Fuzeboxes? Im looking to install one like the PC-8 or the Twisted Throttle version one on my F800GS!

Thanks
Dana

Well, it was bright and sunny today in Fairbanks. 18 degrees when I went to work, mid 40's by mid afternoon. I'm going to sneak another ride or two in before I finally punt for the season I think...
