Looks like a good time to post this image again:



The short story: Riding 2-up in the middle of the desert we got a screw in the rear tire. The safety bead didn't hold so the tire was already loose. I was transferring tire irons between this 950 Adventure and my 950 SE and hadn't put them back on the Adventure for the ride. I got the idea to try using the short axle tools as tire irons and due to the Adv's large drop center wheel it was easy to dismount one side of the tire and replace the tube. I got the tire back on with my foot (in boots) only -no tools at all. Pumped it up with a small electric slime pump and rode home.

Longer story is here.
