    Thanks for the offers guys. I too tried calling and got the same result. We changed a few plans and may head North through Elkins instead of West on Monday.

    They certainly had us surrounded!

    Good ride today! Always fun to see new places.

    I was wondering the same about the picture.
    Glad we didn't round a corner and meet them instead of having them ride up when we were just sitting there.

    From the "Its a Small World Dept", I got to work today and was talking about the ride yesterday. My coworker says that a friend of his sent a him picture of 2 motorcycles that she rode her horse between yesterday on Canyon Rim Road.

    Thanks for the help guys. Pending which direction we went, you guys had us covered. Tetched had a tire lined up for us to use on our way to Marietta, but somewhere during our ride, we passed up SR 78. By the time i figured it out, we were outside Parkersburg. We did an inspection of the tire and decided to just ride it home after lunch at the Levee House in Marietta.

    I'm not sure what happened but this was the heaviest the bike was loaded. By the time we got home the tire was covered in cups and flat spots. The leading edges of each "knob" (if you can call them that on a MT90) were doing the opposite of what a dirt knob does. Instead of rounding, they never wore and were left to look like the flashing left from the joint of the mold, the trailing edge smoothed off into the groove. What was left of the tread on the good side of the tire (3-4mm) was gone.

    Anyhow, thanks again

    I'm sure someone can decipher the wear pattern. It ain't me tho. :D

    I just wear them out and get new ones.

    Tire changing help near Chief Logan Lodge Logan WV. Riding outta Knoxville and one of our group cut a tire. Have a new tire. Would love a machine.

    Contact me here. We're at 317 for dinner. Saturday night.

    I'm sitting here wasting a beautiful day, wife says she wants to do something but isn't sure what.

    She didn't want to have sex this morning, or go on a ride with me so anything else shouldn't concern me anyway. :lol3
