We headed over to Einstein Bagels at 8:30, my daughter had a bagel while we waited for Rick. Rick was joining us for the ride around the “Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway”. We were planing on kickstands up at 9:00, but we got started a little earlier.

There were several things happening this weekend that interested me, our State Fair, Pie Festival in Pie Town and the Rt 66 Festival in Santa Rosa. After much back and forth, I decided Friday night to try out the Festival in Santa Rosa. We didn’t need an early start because no events started before 10:00. The temperature this morning was much cooler, real fall riding weather. The only problem, we spent the day riding in the rain.
