I had a truly classic moment earlier. I stopped in Crawford to make a couple calls. Just sitting on bike. One of the calls started taking longer so I just let the bike lean to the left to rest on the kickstand.

Yup. You got it. The kickstand that I hadn't bothered to put down.

Damn this thing is heavy.

Filled up at 929/36 station. And there was a little blind girl selling Girl Scout cookies so the panniers were full, too.

Don't know what to tell ya, rang four times then went to your voice mail. I didn't leave a message, figured you were out on your bike somewhere.

Anybody got a brand new Anakee2 in a 150/17 sitting at the house? Tire for our Arky rider did not show today. I can come get it tomorrow.

If not I need to find one at a dealer between here and McAllen cuz we are not letting him off the trailer.

I have a largely burned up tkc but it has some miles left on it, a mounted and 50% used tourance, and 80% tread left tourance that went flat but i cant find the hole in. That is the extent of my rear tire collection.

I've got a brand new Heidi if he's interested.

I have a plugged Anakee2, which held air just fine, that should have 1000 miles left in it by most people. More if I'm riding it.

I know that's not a new tire, but it exists.

O course, if you are coming to Austin you might as well check with Lone Star. They usually have at least a Tourance in stock for a GS

I'm running a patched A2 and got a near new patched A2 in the garage that he can use.

Thanks, guys. I will get my take-off Anakee patched by a pro today if I can. Rick says he has plenty of tread for our little trip but he'd rather have more margin.
