Saturday I changed wheels again from my street setup to the Mitas E-07's for an easy trail ride with a few miles of road riding mixed in.

I did lose it in a muddy section when my front tire went one track and the rear, the other. No real hard core ADV guys along to take that instant picture, so it didn't happen!

Steve and Tommy both rode with me on their XL650 Honda's.

We rode some of the sandy, muddy tough stuff then headed out North of Immokalee to a place called Dinner Island (Refuge). After our stop for Mexican food in Immokalee it was late in the day, but we continued.

Beautiful evening, with light breeze and about 75 degrees.

We got down one two-track, but that was about it for trails, other than cow trails through the pastureland. We saw one bunch of about 12 deer, but too quick to get a photo.
Back on the gravel off the two-track and Tommy pulled up to me pointing at his front tire. FLAT!


As the sun set we hit the road. 80 miles to home with a flat tire and no tube.
The zip ties let loose as Tommy hit 70 MPH! He said it handled fine except for the curves (3) on the way home. I always carry spare tubes on my DRZ!
Said maybe he'll spring for some new tires!
