My son and I like to take an end-of-season tour each fall and this year we managed to squeeze in a 4 day, 2000 mile trip to the Black Hills. It snowed some a day or two before we got there and when we headed for home we were wiping snow from the windshield/visor all the way down Nemo Road into Sturgis. Got an email from "ozzyn" telling us we just made it out in time before a 5" dump.

Had a great time, with my son borrowing his uncle's Honda 800 Interceptor for the weekend. He's now convinced that his first REAL bike will be an ST1300. My still-new-to-me 1500 was fantastic. Purred all the way and kept me dry and warm. I will be adding a fork brace. Other than that, no complaints.

Thought I was through with long rides for the year (it's snowing here as I type this) but just got an email from one of my BMW buddies about joining him and 1/2 dozen other BMWs on a trip to Duluth at the end of October. They do it every year. Never been snowed in yet. I'm considering it but I did notice the buttons on the 1500 sure don't like the cold. Don't know about pushing my luck and having some little thing break on me and spend the winter fuming about it. I've got 3 weeks to think about it. We'll see if the snow flies.

Here's some pictures of the Black Hills trip. Hit it on the perfect weekend for brilliant colors:

The Black Hills region is beautiful indeed. It was getting cool in the mornings when I was there in the later half of September(20-24), with the mornings getting down near freezing, but was otherwise sunny most of the time.
