Anyone ridden this road recently? I'm looking to head up there this weekend and wanted to see how technical the ride is. I'm sort of a dirt noob with my DL1000.

Had the same thing happen to me on a cross country flight. My hunch is that the baggage areas are not climante controlled to the degree the cabins are and the insulin got too cold.

BMW had the tire, but would not mount it as it's not a BMW. Cycle Gear would mount it, but didn't have the tire.

I needed a place that would do both. Riders Hill fit the bill.

Need V-Strom Tire in ATL (150-70R-17)

Hey-

I'm traveling cross country and burned through my rear tire a LOT faster than I had hoped. Does anyone know of a place that might have such a tire in Atlanta?

Thanks,
