Which means I'm feeling a little pressured to get all the riding in that I can before the long cold. I've acquired some warmer gear since relocating from the desert wastes, but I'm still not keen to risk using Triumph as a high-performance black ice divining rod, so once the temperatures get low enough, that will be the end of my riding season.
This weekend, I made sure to throw a splash of Sta-bil in the tank, and fill it up at the end of my ride, just in case the weather turns on me. Fingers crossed for a long fall, though. I won't mind a bit if the snow waits until December.
