Believe it or not, all that stuff packs pretty small. The compressor is small, the tools are in a roll and my tailbag really isn't that large.
Sounds awesome, I'm glad to know you have that stuff.

He's a handy sumbitch.

The only implements I carry on rides anymore are a Leatherman and a cel phone with *ALN pre-programmed as my only contact.

Only reason to wear a helmet, as far as I'm concerned.

Seems like you could prop it on one of the downed logs pretty easily. Mesquite thorn trouble? The state tree of hell.

Hell, mine lays on its side enough when I am out riding that if I ever get a flat I just plan on laying it over.

So every time I come to the State House there is a BMW F800 parked in this little alley, Pearl St., just a block north of the capitol by El Arepaizo restaurant. Aluminum panniers, and an ADV sticker. Anyone know who it is? Oh, today it had Hippo Hands on the bars.

plenty of sticks around, no need to lift onto a log. plus you can't tell by the photo, but the road is going uphill and the bike wouldn't be stable.

Not sure what caused the flat, it was low earlier and I added air to it, then accelerating up that hill tore the valve stem.

Sounds like mine, but it wasn't me. I'll check the storage unit to see if it's been stolen.

I was trying to think positive.

feh...I've ridden several of Steves bikes in the past and never hurt a one of em...besides, he's wanting me to buy the KLR so he probably sees this as a demo ride.

It was the first (maybe 2nd) time I rode with Mark and the gang and there were 2 flat tires that day out of 4 bikes.

I changed tires on the CRF50 last night those 10inch wheels are a ass kicker. The side walls are so short and so stiff you cant get your hands in there to get the valve stem in the hole and the tires are a pain to get on rim. The good thing is with 5hp those tires last a long time.
