Default Wet Leaves & Spilled Grain

The Fall Season brings down a lot of leaves and wet leaves on a road are like grease to a motorcycle tire. Another road hazzard around here is spilled corn & soybeans on the rural roads. They are like tiny marbles to a motorcycle. I even encountered some spilled diesel fuel at a township road intersection last week. Very slick and the smell was unmistakable, probably a tractor or combine with a loose or missing cap on it's diesel fuel tank going around the corner. Anyhow we have to all be careful of the seasonal hazzards that come with Fall.

The flower shop where I work doing deliveries has a huge black walnut tree in back where we park.
When I ride to work it's like riding on giant marbles.

Default Experienced Riders

I would say most if not all experienced riders would've already encountered little surprises like those mentioned in this post on road surfaces. Novice riders might be reading this post and learn something from it instead of getting a nasty surprise and some road rash to go with it. Even experienced riders can have lapses in their paying attention to the road conditions.
