haha, nice catch Rob! My center stand was fucked up so I just laid the bike on it's side to pull the rear wheel and fix a flat.. It was pretty quick work actually but plenty of people stopped and took pictures of me and my beached whale of a bike.. I think a few of the paparazzi bastards actually offered to help if needed though..

I'm looking into options to make the bike a bit more off road worthy for 2013.. Mostly taking off some weight but while not spending a ton of money to shave a few ounces.. I like the Pelican cases a lot but I'm contemplating soft cases or going ultra-lite and just using a waterproof duffel strapped to the rear rack along with my "tank" bag and a hydration pack with a little storage capacity. Plan for a discussion about custom soft cases at the pre-New Years Eve camp-n-ride...

When in doubt, gas it. It will either fix the problem, or at the very least end the suspense.
