    If your speaking of the mileage contest, I already know I'm a DNF. October is about the worst month around here for riding. If it's not raining, it's frosted in a way you can't see. And is very unpredictable... It's very humid, but very cold. A bad combo. Then add the sudden wet leaf piles, and mud tracks from the farmers harvesting there crops... The good riding days are very sporadic....
    Plus there is the constant threat of deer as they are very active in that month around here..
    believe it or not, I actually have more mileage opportunities in December! Lol! Gotta love living on a lakeshore in Wisconsin! Lol.

    Yeah, I understand that - Montana offers much of the same type of Fall riding. But December is still part of the Contest! :p

    If I were guess.. I'll get about 200 tops from now till spring....
    And to boot, I got rained on, and now my cluster, is doing odd things, so, I'm likely going back to the dealer..... again......
    I think Mark had a great idea! Good luck to all who participate!

    Well, I could make up a good lie as to why I have not entered, and it would be more fun then the truth but... I I learned at a very young age I am a very bad lier. Right now I am doing 80 hour work weeks and yesterday was my first day off in a month. Does not leave me much riding time.:mad: Also as I am out of town doing this and knew I would only get the random day to play I brought the New Old Girl with me. So the Squaw is at her teepee happy and cozy.
    I will say the New old Girl loved the back roads my friends took us on yesterday. And I loved the weather and a day to go ride roads I have never been on.

    There are NO EXCUSES. It's like the lottery, you can't win if you don't play.

    That being said, less that enter, the better my chances of winning. Then I can sell one of the prizes and have some coin for my ride to Kanab in May for the Indian-Harley shootout.

    I'm maintaining radio silence on mileage.
    One of these days I'm going to take that salvage speedometer with 5,000 miles off the shelf when I trade in this bike.

    I'll be limited to riding to and from work on clear days when the streets have thawed out enough to not be a full sheet glacier from my driveway to the main streets between November and April so ... I'm out.

    I'm recovering from surgery but riding on my days off. There is no way I can compete.
