Tire swap in Henderson

We are in Las Vegas now, heading out to Henderson this afternoon. Inmate tbarstow was kind enough to allow us to ship fresh tires to his place and provide us some assistance with swapping tires out. As a noob to dual sport riding, I've actually never changed my own motorcycle tires, or needed to fix a flat, so this will also be a good tutorial for our upcoming ride through rougher roads south of the border. We will post again with some more details of that experience, as well as an update of how the CigarMike centerstand works out for that maintenance. So far, the centerstand has been a huge help and has been holding up perfectly well. This prototype is about there, probably pretty near production.

And thankfully, neither Jill nor myself is a big gambler, so we still have all the money that we entered Vegas with.

We also have a couple more days to catch up on to bring us up to today, but that will follow in the next couple of days...
