Chase the Sun. 12/12/12 The End.
 
Going down south before the next full moon.
Will be at the Mayan tomb by
December twelve by the year of twenty twelve.

Then only then, I will know what to do.
but for now, here is the bike.

This is new for me.
The rocks, sands, trees, and things.
I used to suit up to ride the Crest.
If you live in L.A., you know what I mean.

This is the new road.
So far, I enjoy the new thing it gives me.

I learn a few tricks of dirt riding.
If it's a wrong thing to do,
please enlighten me with no hesitation.

On the track, gas it when in doubt.
But on the mountains, in the river or valley,
especially on mean sands,
you better sit yo dumb ass down and easy with the throttle.

This is new for me,
the rocks, sands, trees, and things.
But I'm learning a little by little.
like how I was when I was a little.

Thank you each every one of you.

Let your bike dance between your knees in the loose stuff. Forward momentum is your friend. Speed is not.

Get weight on your foot pegs, even is your knees are bent enough that your butt is dusting off your saddle.

Looks like your DR laid down for a rest in that first photo.

Have fun. Subscribed!

Prep Work
 
So far....
I have fatten the handle bar,
enlarged the gas tank,
installed the center stand,
changed the seat,
shelled out for TM40,
opened up the airbox,
caned the stock can,
and got me a cool can.
and finally...
a beautiful black rack.

My belly burns as the time approaches.
Day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment,
I am torn between the elated optimism to
unbearable anxiety.

I wanna be on the road, but I need to tight this last bolt.
There"re always more of these last bolts.
A great American playwright once illustrated as
the Hero steps out for the journey.
His bag flung over his broad shoulder,
his eyes scan vast wilderness in front of him.
And he drops his bag on the ground,
kneels, undo his shoe lace. tightens the right shoe firmly.
He checks the other shoe, undo, tightens, checks.
Maybe dig through his bag,
looking for some other trivial shit.
You get the idea......

Hard to see just where the tire is from here. But, make sure you have a much of the tire bead in the valley as you can get. It just don't look like it's there from the picture.

Much thanks to you.

The "valley" is the low point on the rim, from a cross-section perspective. On the opposite side of where you are trying to get the tire over the rim, push the tire's bead down into the valley, or lowest part of the rim in it's center. That will free it up and allow you to get the rubber down over the opposite side. When you air up the tire, it will expand outward uniformly and seat on the rim.

Thank you very so much.
