If you're gonna do the sidestand trick, make sure you do what Nate did - tie off the centerstand to the front wheel to keep it from folding under. If that bad boy falls when the stand folds, it's gonna give you fits.

I carry an old shower curtain with me on all trips. They're damn tough and will keep the dirt out of your wheels. It's also handy for wrapping up tire irons. Added weight is nothing.

That's a great idea! I'm going to have to explain to my wife that K7 said to use the shower curtain
