Is this why you guys told me to carry a patch kit? :P

Thankfully my dad spotted it before the head wore off, I never would have noticed it. Looks like a roofing tack, both of us had our houses roofed recently. It was all the way through, but didn't seem to be leaking.

If it was me tellin' ya, I woulda told you to carry a spare TUBE..... AND a patch kit, and a 12v pump.
The patch will likely fail in the heat the tire creates.
But,,,,if it's yer second flat of the day.....a patch might still get you home

DAMHIK...
( I recently had some experience on that very subject )

I don't think I can make it, I would love to but it is getting a little too close to the due date of my wife and I's first baby. Might get a chance to get out and ride Saturday but no overnight excursions for me right now.

It's been a busy busy summer and I don't think I can spare a weekend. My dad and I are gearing up to ride through Glacier next week. I finally got him talked into buying a bike, first one since his two-stroke Suzuki 185 that he sold in the mid-80s. He got a DL650 as well. I tried to get him to look at the KLRs, he owns a Kubota so I figured that would be a natural progression, but he was more comfortable getting a bike like mine.

Just be sure to hit all your nails sideways, and you won't need a patch kit.

Broke my first turn signal just after crossing paths with AJ last weekend. Ordered an OEM replacement ($$$), will investigate less vulnerable alternatives for next time. Figured I found the limits of the 'Strom and I after another nap - I bugged out at the next road crossing. I need to quit trying to follow those small orange things. Maybe I'll get a more suitable bike next year, or start taking out the TC90.

We weren't following AJ, just happened to cross paths with him. I was chasing boardforever on his DR and some of his buddies on KTM 2-strokes.

Well I have a 2-stroke too!


Put some new decals on the VS the day before and nicked one of them in the spill. Oh well.

I just have that kind of effect on the people I meet


Buy two blinkers at a time, you'll eventually need them.
Fortunately KTM's blinkers are $17 for the whole group of parts, and I usually only break pieces of it at a time
