Whew! Just finished the all-afternoon-up-to-9PM rear tire change. Of course I was multitasking doing that, drinking beer, watching MotoGP, and helping cook the spaghetti dinner with a side of spinach cooked up with ricotta, fresh garlic and basil, and a few other Italian seasonings.

The rear wheel on an F 650 is enough to test anyone's ability and religion - the drop center in the rear rim doesn't really drop enough. The front, no problem. The rear - well, I'll clean the blood off the garage floor tomorrow while chainging the oil and front sprocket.

All that's left after that is to pack and double check.

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.
