    Bussey is only bad if it has been wet. And it looks like there has only been 0.21" of rain over the last 72 hours in the area so it should be nice and dry.
    So you should be golden as there is no rain or snow forecast for the weekend.

    We're all going down by Bellevue to ride this weekend...since we heard the land owner was going to be gone.

    Ended up riding at Bluff Creek with reedski and my boy and 3 more friends.
    The tracks were as good as they get! perfect! I haven't rode that hard for a year.
    Just a little trail riding.

    What a great Sunday ride with @Orangecicle and @GlobalriderTrev ...save for when we hit what I thought was dry, dark grey, packed dirt doing 50+...the bike could not make up its mind if to throw me off to the left or the right while it swerved in both directions multiple times with the Heidenaus (K60) packing in mud as if on a mission; fortunately it never made up its mind and managed to exit that section unscathed, don’t know how.

    Lesson learned: K60’s are absolute sh!t in wet/muddy conditions.

    Great company and good November weather!!!

    It was a fun ride with @Orangecicle and @TrailGoat. The puddle crossing was at the south end of Walnut Trl. The muddy fender was on the west en of 265 str.
