And up here in Portland and the Willamette Valley we are seeing daytime temperatures in the 70s with the occasional afternoon above 80. Beautiful riding weather. Of course, the rain may start to arrive in a week or two so local riders should enjoy it while it lasts.

Temps here in SW Ohio were in the upper 80's this week as summer held on til the end. It was 89F yesterday afternoon. Like a switch, a cold front arrived and temps plummeted to the low 60's in less than 12 hours.

Fall has arrived here with a big gust of wind...

We've seen the first morning frost this week...a bit early this year, I'll have to admit

On a sunny day mid-day temperature is still around 50F.

Now the end of the riding season is coming closer, I think of all the trips I wanted to make this year but didn't.

At the same time, it makes me look forward to all the trips I'm going to make next year, that I wanted make this year but didn't.

Next year is going to be a lovely riding year!

We were 80s a few days ago. Woke up to near 40° this morning.

Some of my favorite riding weather on the way.

Yeah it is chilly here in NYC and I wasn't/am not mentally prepared for the colder weather.
I have to get the Vespa ready for the cold, put back the windshield, the blanket(termoscud) and the handlebar muffs.
Have to wash, wax and then apply ACF 50 to the underside to keep rusting at bay...
Oh blimey, what bothers me is how suddenly it went from being hot to being chilly, there wasn't a gradual drop which would have prepared the mind differently.
Now I feel I have these chores have been hastened.
Well it is only 3 months before we get to the days getting longer again ..

I don't think that triple-digit temperatures in Celsius is such a good idea.

We have had a long, warm and dry summer this year but now autumn has landed.
I am driving the scooter in the weekend and this weekend is the third in a row that it is raining and I do not drive in the rain.
Temperatures are around 15°C (60F).
Prediction for the upcoming weekend is rain again.
