Was checking my chain earlier today and realized dam I need a new rear tire on the wee! I'm new to El Paso you gots any recommendations? I imagine my odds of finding one local before next week are pretty dam slim.
At this late point......I would try santa Teresa motorsports on country club rd...... But I think your right...... It looks like Woody's are sponsoring this...... I had an issue with a wheel/tire combo from them that they are taken great care of for me.... Hoping it will arrive before I go, so I can ride the gs up there....... But perhaps a ring to them..... Ask them to bring a tire up there...... For a field r/r....... Could work.....I have a set of big tire irons.......and pump....... I need to talk with them today, and could inquire for you, if I had the size..........?...

Gas?

I am super excited to come out!

I'm trying to figure out what all I need to bring with me.

I've got a 100-120 mile range with this monster 1.9 gal tank. Should I figure out a way to carry extra gas on my WR250?
I'd love to be able to do some of the (easy?) passes.

Get a couple bottles of the Primus 1.5L bottles from Amazon. That will get your 3/4 of a gallon. These you can strap into a satchel onto the back of your bike, or carry in a backpack.

Hey Rick,
I'll be coming back from a days ride and I'll have a cold one with you. I've rejetted the fleet and loaded the trailer and will be heading out this saturday to arrive on monday. I'm there for a week then on to Salida for two months, YEH! Just got back from seeing my back surgeon in Florida and he wants to take the rod and hardware out of my back but I don't want to miss two months of riding, so I'm gonna try and wait till next fall. See you on wednesday.

Yeah last night I ordered a tire from SW moto if it actually ships from Tucson it should be here in a few days max. Then I should be ready to go by early next week. If all works out probably end up leaving early early Friday morning to beat the heat.
