    A pee break that just happened to coincide with a flat tire. :lol3 That's sallydog and Little Dog Chirico that rode together on that Super Tenere some 11,000 miles in the past few weeks leading up to the RDV! :deal

    [​IMG]
















    The flat tire happened right behind where I stopped...how lucky was that? :clap
