Campin' out

Don't think I'd advise Platte River for their convenience of being near good long riding trails. This campground always seems filled, and take no reservations. 1st come, 1st served. I think they'd be...

why no patch ?

Don't quite understand why a patch won't work now since I've gone with the "ride-on". It's supposed to be water soluable and will wash out of the carcass. Haven't ridden the bike since the initial...
