Depending on where you are, the leaves are starting to fall already. Pulled up to a stop sign and put my foot down, only to have my boot start to slide sideways. Looked down and there were leaves on the road that I had not noticed because I was watching the traffic. Quickly found new footing but for a short guy like me a slipping foot is a problem for holding up a big bike. Bottom line, time of year to start watching for leaves, under foot or under tires. Ride safe everyone.
