Turns out to be a great start to Spring.
showed up for a cruise
We headed up to Snakehead Ridge via a rambling route, south up Neal Creek Canyon. Squal
is a nice impressionable lad, easily convinced to leave his perfectly good bike and hop aboard my KLR sidecar, which I had yet to get around to servicing
We found a little snow up on top, but for the most part the roads were clear
Exhibiting hubris unwarranted, I left my tools and survival kit on the other bike(calm down Andy. I did have my shovel and saw, compass, maps, matches and toilet paper. I was arrogant not ignorant)
Unfortunately, what I needed was tire spoons and a patch kit. In the dry bag. On the other bike. At home.
We managed to ride several miles out of the hills on a completely flat tire. No damage, no walking, no foul! I love Kenda K270 tires! Cheap, reasonable traction on a variety of surfaces and TOUGH!
