No worries, if you are available Monday just shoot me a text.

Anyone else in the area (who gets Columbus Day off) want to ride on Monday?

Will do

Might go check out some roads that I usually ride by on the way to somewhere else.
Not knowing where they go bothers me, there could be something cool there.

That may be doable if I get some tires before then. I will have to haul the bike up Sunday and will need a place to camp.

Just an FYI anything NF related that can be locked or gated is shut down. Camps, restrooms, overlooks, picnic areas, info centers, etc...

Completely retarded and ridiculous.

Yes TD, park rangers and National Forest law enforcement are working but at reduced numbers.

I hope this shutdown is over before deer (gun) season. I hunt an NF area about six miles behind a gate that is not unlocked until a day or two before the season opens.

Bikes put away, probably for the winter

Leaving for the U.P. in the morning, 6 days a week, probably night shift.

Most likely not back until Thanksgiving. Sucks because I love fall here.
Got a little riding in, running some errands. Weather has been perfect for riding, if I would have been off another month I would have needed a new back tire, again.

Front tire on the LC4 is wearing funny now, the rear of the knobs is wearing off at about twice the rate of the front.
Really started showing a lot the last week or so.

Job started in August, I asked to go then.
The company has had their cheap help up there and now the job is a mess and we have to bail them out.

It's probably snowing already.
