    High of 90 with over 50% humidity for Bixby; Clear skies, light southerly breezes. Could be a bit sticky warm today.
    Good luck to the contestants and workers.

    Resized_20170922_124807(2).jpeg Doing a little trail layout. Too deep to walk in it. But hey riding a 600 pound GS through it won't be hard.

    Sieg, you've got an evil side of you that I wasn't aware of.. I wouldn't take my 600 pound GS in there, because I would hate to ask people to wade in and help me pick it up..

    No no, we don't make people push you out. The tractor is right there all day with a log chain for that.

    Hi guys,

    adventure day flyer with fred 2017 (002).jpg
    For any of you that are looking for something fun to do next weekend, there will be a big open house at Niehaus Cycles on Friday and Saturday, Oct 13 and 14. The Yamaha demo truck will be there both days with many new models, including the all new Yamaha Venture touring bike. On Saturday we will also have another Adventure Demo day. Several riders attended that last year and had a good time. I will be leading 25 mile back road tours on the shops adventure style bikes made by Honda and Yamaha. There will also be a pork chop sandwich lunch. Details on the attached flyer. Hope to see you there.

    Sounds fun! Are you allowing 2up riding on the demo bikes? It's easier to convince the wife to go if she can ride along with me! :D

    New to the ADV life but with 12 years of sport and enduro skills in the tool box. Looking forward to applying the skill sets together on the same machine. Hopefully I will be able to make day 2 of the loose nut ride. Any local riders in the Farmington area?
