Took a ride out to the West Coast (that is what we call the Western edge of Michigan that touches Lake Michigan) yesterday morning on one of my favorite roads. The sun was showing up for the most part. It was 42 and kinda windy, but motoring on Leonard from Grand Rapids to Grand Haven helped me realize what I like about fall riding. (The road follows the Grand River for the most part and is a treat to ride.)

What I Like:
1. The bright colors are a gas.
2. Cold, crisp air.
3. No bugs (even close to, or crossing, the river or streams)
4. People talk to you at every stop.
("isn't it too cold to ride", etc. etc.)
5. Seeing the occasional other rider out doing the same.

What do you like about riding in the fall??
