I'm not heading out until Friday morning. Only two days of riding for me. Well, I may head out after work on Thursday to get part way up there, but that is dependent on temperature and work load.

91 octane is 91 octane. If it isn't knocking with ethanol then it will be fine with non-ethanol. My experience is the non-ethanol will feel somewhat more responsive and I'll get better mileage.
