Just a great day of riding
But first, I had to make a phone call. I had been keeping track of maintenance and figuring when would be a good day to stop and take care of stuff. On the list so far was LDF's sprockets & chain needed replacing, a new front tire for me, a new spare front tube, oil changes, and air filter cleaning.
I figured we could ride through the weekend, and with luck, get to Liberal, KS by monday. I called ahead to Milhon Cycle, and made sure that they had a front knobby for my bike that they would hang on to.
and we would pick up a front spare tube there as well. A calculated risk, but I figured if we got another front flat, plan A would be to patch it, plan B to run the spare rear tube in the front, plan C, leave the bike with the flat and the other bike gets ridden god knows how far to fetch a new tube.
[BTW, has anyone ever tried temporarily running the largest width 21" bicycle tube as a front tube on a moto? I wonder if that would work, as you could pick up one of those in almost any hardware store.
We'll call that plan W.
