    Scratch that location off for an October Rally destination.
    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    I tried riding the baby GS through a patch of snow up by Nason Creek once. Got 18' into the 20' patch of slush when the back tire decided it didn't like it. Tourances were not made for wet slushy, ice based spring snow. At least the 6" of snow protected the expensive tupperware on the bike.

    Only thing damaged was my ego as I lay there, listening to the spouse laugh at me.....
    Too damn many bikes to list
