Don't you just love the fall riding season? The leaves are changing, the hot and humid temperatures are well behind us, and the holidays are right around the corner. As you can tell from this month's issue, September was a very busy month as our team of photojournalists logged some serious time in the saddle covering several rides, rallies, and events from across the country.
Although October marks the final stage of many bike nights and riding events here in the Midwest, we should still have several good weeks of riding before the declining temperatures persuade many fair-weather riders to park their bikes in the garage. Therefore, make sure to get out there and take advantage of the great jacket weather before it's too late!
