Not really, we just ride, camp, eat breakfast, eat lunch, drink beer, and help each other out working on stuff at times...

Mine wasn't to bad but if they offer to let you stay over night stay.
Of the three ops I had for mine I went home as out patient once and it was a rough 24 hrs without those shots. Cry

The Fayetteville urology group do some of their lithotripsy cases at the facility where I work. Did three today of which 2 were repeat customers all done outpatient.
One said they never had any pain and another said they experienced moderate pain following the procedures.
Good luck to all you hard rockers!

I use a little set of two, in a plastic bag, from rocky mt atv fr like $12

mine are like this, but without the fender bag

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...ons/tusk+irons

they are too short really, I mean thats all ive ever used, but longer ones would be nicer, especially when at home in the garage


get yourself a longer set for garage work initially something like these

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=pd_sl_7h...usk+tire+irons

and you will need a valve stem tool, I use one like this, from wally mart or autozone, whatever is close.

http://www.amazon.com/Slime-20088-4-...alve+stem+tool


and an air compressor.

I use a chunk of foam so I dont damage my brake rotor while wrestling it around the driveway.

and dish soap, lots of dish soap helps the tools slide around the rim and seat the bead too.

ducttape makes a handy rim strip too, and if you have a rim lock its a bit harder.

some folks use these too, they are handy, but I do not own one.

like this:

http://www.advdesigns.com/alvastfipure.html

that helps get the tubes valve stem back through the rim when its hard to fit a large hand in there and persuade it.

maybe Ill have time to come up and show you my terrible techniques when you order a tire!

Order at least one tube for front, and one for rear too.

and buy a patch kit at wally mart for $5, you will likely puncture a tube at least a time or two learning how to spoon a tire ( see Docs TAT thread for reference)


Buying tires, personally I always do it online.

im sure the local businesses would appreciate your business, but.. IM just a cheap ass, lowest bidder wins.

i just check all of these, find the lowest price, shipping+tire, and order up, usuall its only a couple of days, they all pretty much ship from parts unlimited or whatever warehouses in mid america
