    Facing Leaf Rally...Potosi Missouri

    Don't forget about the Falling Leaf Rally held in beautiful Potosi Missouri, sponsored by the Gateway Riders BMW club this weekend. Home of magnificent curves on country roads or off-road challenges worthy of GS Challenge, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place to pitch a tent, set a spell meeting old and new friends before riding out on your adventure. So the weather looks to be good and plenty of firewood available to to spend the cool night cozing up to the campfire spinning yearns of bygone adventures.

    Some years it is the Frozen Leaf Rally and other years it is the Floating Leaf Rally. But always good times and good riding.

    This year looks lovely keep it will be the third baby bear choice where the weather will be just right! Temps moderate and only a slight chance of rain late Sat. night or Sunday morning.

    This one may be the green leaf rally. No frost yet to turn the leaves.

    Oh wow. It looks like highs in the 80s Friday and Saturday and low 70s on Sunday. Overnight lows are forecast to be - get this now - in the low 60s. Friday and Saturday rain probability 1% to 5%.

    But y'all could get going home Sunday morning, especially if you are going west.

    One of my favorite rallies from the not to distant past. I'm a bit of a geography/history buff. A little ride down south down Highway 21 leads to some interesting sites. Elephant Rocks, Johnson Shut-Ins, Taum Sauk Mountain, Ft. Davidson. Interesting riding in the area. Worth a visit.
