My 950 Adv. in it's dirt set-up. I took this picture, then climbed back on the bike and quickly realized there was a problem. The rear tire was flat and one side of the bead had already broken (non-stock rear rim). It was about 12 miles to home and the second side of the bead broke at about 4 miles. Then things got interesting!

Yep, back on the bench next to the tire irons, tool kit and spare tube!

O.k., so I had the tool kit, not that it was any help.

Here's a short video of CJRacer riding his 950 up wet abondened old road. Th video doesn't do the difficulty of getting up the hill justice, especially since he had a Scorpian rear tire on.

I remember I was too short to get it up the hill. Thanks for riding mine too.
Walking up that hill sure did suck though.
