The rear tire is balanced! It took 70g. With the tube empty I shifted the tire around on the rim to find the most balanced arrangement. I then moved the weights around using masking tape and had it perfect...until I reinflated. Then I had to start all over because it was AFU... again! Tubes: I carry a 17" and 21" for spares. I bought an ultra heavy duty for the front. It weighs a ton and will be returned. What's left: Mounting the spare gas tank. Mounting dry boxes. Sorting out tools. Test ride of new carb needle. Gas mileage check with new needle. Pack bike. Pack car. Not forget passport.
