Like your riding philosophy and making it a romantic adventure is the icing on top. Your report is inspiration for a Mpls-Reno rendezvous, hopefully the right circumstances will come together as they did for you.
TERRIFIC RIDE AND REPORT !!!!!
The tire that split was a 130/90-16 ME880 with 1200 miles on it and it was on the bike for about a week. I kid you not I was talking to a Goldwing rider a few days after the incident and he reported a Metsler rear tire split on him.
Hey and thanks for your comments and everyone else’s. It inspires me to continue adventure riding. Life is so short and there are so many places I still want to check out. We all need to MAKE the circumstances come together, not hope it happens (O wow, that's kind of Zen like).
