One more thing (not necessarily an autumn riding tip):
When standing beside your bike and walking it out of your garage, make sure you are on the kickstand side, just in case the kickstand decides to flip up on a snagged something or other. Better yet, straddle the bike when duckwalking it.
Again, don't ask me how I know this. Luke M
