Today was a beautiful day with the fall colors everywhere clear roads and on a tight 20k hairpin curve with my GF on the back I heard the scrape of the right crash bar. My trajectory was good and tight staying on my side of the line. No puckering as I had been forewarned. Thank you to all on the forum for the advance warning.
GF was cool with it and all good.

I've scraped my bars too - always shocks me when it happens - I don't feel like I'm very leaned over either.

You are a couple weeks ahead of us on the South shore of Lake Erie. Looks like it is going to be a beautiful Fall.

Awesome!

I did a long trip last week to find spots to scatter my Mother's ashes. It was perfect out! Trees definitely changing in CO

It is nice to see you are enjoying riding and checking out nature. Here in NYC it is becoming more and more unbearable to ride anywhere. The city govt is trying to get people give up using personal transportation and use the public transit system. Hence more bike lanes, more streets closed off for the "open Streets" initiatives https://www1.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/pedestrians/openstreets.shtml
Along with a lot parking spots taken away for making space for bars/cafes/restaurants etc to have outdoor seating available during the pandemic, lots of construction either buildings or infrastructure like water/sewer/gas lines being replaced etc all adding up to making riding anywhere not fun. I get that the city is trying to do a lot to reduce air pollution etc but I do strongly believe that policy makers don't have much background in science or engineering and this seems to be true not just in NYC but at the state and national level.
So yeah I am jealous that you are enjoying beautiful nature and get to it relatively easily despite the scrapes ( I scrape the side stand every time Im leaning turning left, mean to remove it but haven't yet). Enjoy and share more of those beautiful pics, some of us live vicariously through the likes of you .

Sirovision,

Super Fall Color photos. This is my favorite time of the year. thanks.

baba12,

Same same here in the peoples republic of Minneapolis. City planners are openly
trying to discourage vehicle use. What I find amusing, with the overkill of lane
closures for bicycles, is the fact we are froze out of bike riding for 5 months a year
in cold Minnesota. I have previously posted - "Common Sense seems to be out
of fashion".

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck (Today) it is not
a duck. Ba dee ba da.

Lovely Autumn colours there.
In the South, we are well into Spring, with Summer visible down the path.
The blooms are out, the birds are nesting and the weather is warming up.
The low single digit C dawns of Winter are now double digit ones and the girls are out in short sleeves and skirts.
Life is good.
