Fresh Snow in May?

Could be, I'll be finding real soon too.
Right now at my home in White Rock it is 41 with a light rain and at 6500FT elevation.
I'm heading out to a Campout up in the near by Mountains, our campsite is at 8800ft ele, so you would think it is at least snowing up there-hopefully it is.
I can alreadly feel the heat coming off the hot campfire tonite, while steaming fresh corn-on-the cob and potato's in the fire coals, load then down with butter and sour cream and a nice cold beam n coke, ah....
I'll post pics/vid's when I get back-

Nice...yeah we moved the trip to Sipipu from this week to the week of June 13th. I think I can get an extra day then too...and the snow may be gone below 11000.

Tomorrow we head to Gillina for the day.

Does the changes in altitude make a noticeable affect in the way the Brutes run?

Not as much on the FIs as the carbed ones. Mine is jetted for between 3900 and 7000 feet. When I get over that it starts getting a little rich, but I have those TPI adjustable air intake vents in my airbox. I just open them up a bit more. From closed to full open, they are like going down three jet sizes. I can ride over 12000 feet with no problems.

Here in NM it is not common to get any snow storms in May and since we had a very mild winter, there is No snow pack at all in the local mountains with elevations as high as 12,000ft.
The mountains today got more fresh snow, not much but every little bit helps.

It snowed on us today in Gallina. Great ride...but cold and windy at times...and show. All is green over there though.
