Thanks for the comments on the RR!
Garth's bike is back in action. Cycle Gear replaced the tire and tube under warranty with zero hesitation!
My gaskets came in but the shop noticed one was torn so I'm waiting a few more days. In the mean time, I noticed my front tire was leaking. When I switched out the tube the valve stem fell off the old one. Had that happened in the final hours of the ride we'd be sunk. BTW I got my ins. policy renewal. The $95 annual policy includes $10 for roadside assistance. I didn't realize I had that coverage. I wonder if they'd haul me out of the forest.
