Hey Pete, if'n ya want to change that tar at TT, I'll bring my spoons. We could do a Hooligan Tire Change in about 11.697184 minutes, breaking Eloy's record.

One thing's for sure--tar changes are so much more fun when ya have plenty o' beer. In fact, I heard that Mugwest Motorsports is working on a secret tire changing machine that actually runs on beer. Oops. Guess it ain't a secret no mores.

The first pic could've been from around here.

The second pic wasn't from anywhere around here! It kinda reminds me of Buzzard's Roost in the Pisgah Natl Forest. Am I even close?

We have a winner! I hit Buzzard's Roost late in the afternoon and it was magnificent. A little early yet for the best fall colors, but a spectacular view nonetheless.

I took the truck up to Knoxville this past weekend to pick up some furniture from relatives. Managed to sneak the DR along for the trip and got some great GPS tracks from a TN inmate.

Buzzard's Roost! Man, what a view. Excellent riding in that area too--I rode all over Harmon Den this past summer on the KLR; that's some pretty country! And even prettier when the leaves are changing.

Just make sure to bring the right size tire. Trying to spoon a 17" tar on an 18" wheel is tough!

Since then I ALWAYS check tire size before installation.

If memory serves - I think I was there. But then again, maybe not. Did it involve a 4x4 wooden chock and gaggle of dirty hungover people?

Anyone?

I think it may have been Mini...at Indigo that time...

Either way, I dam sure have Eloys video at hand!

That was at a pre-ANF gig in Tally a few years ago.

Chef Forrest brought a 17" tar to mount up on his KTM950 18" rear wheel.

Yabbut the sticker on the tire did in fact say 18"...I sawr it myself, I did. Man if that'd happened to me I'd have been 17 kinds of pissed off. Kevin handled it remarkably well though.

This getting up at 4AM to go to work pretty much sucks ass.

OOOOOOOOO I WASSSSSS PISSSSSSSED OFF.
Crap like that always happens to Me.
(Like getting my order from motorcycle superstore yesterday ---
Called Friday and ordered a Trail tech headlight- I know some places sell the stone guard as extra.
So I ask them if it comes with the light as there is no (buy the stone guard extra button for $14.99) and the pic shows it with the guard. He says let me call parts, comes back to me ( Yes it comes with it) me says send me one. so ups comes open the box - no guard - call M/S , tell them he says he will check and call back in 5 min - calls back No it dont come with it, but I could order one from the nice lady from trail tech. and he sent an e-mail to the catalog dept to add the stone guard to the catalog.

Dont you Hate getting the Right sticker but the wrong tire?

It looked Like 4 gays playing Twister with 1 Dot, when we were trying to get that thing on.

I think I had several photos of that tire change. I deleted them cause they looked like the wrong kind of porn.
