Had a significant mechanical failure while on I-90 just outside Big Timber MT.
Just after going over some rumbly pavement my rear got all soft and swishy.
I pull over.... flat rear tire.
We begin to dig in to the prob.
I have all the spares and stuff.(tubes ect)
As we're digging in fellow adv rider "drew" stops on a nice KLR.
I'd just replaced my tires and tubes in MN!
The "heavy duty" Kenda tube failed at the valve. The valve simply separated from the tube. What a piece of fucking crap!
Anyway thanks to being prepared and the grace of a fellow adv we were back on the road lickety split.
