First Day of Spring Ride

Turns out to be a great start to Spring.
Squal showed up for a cruise



We headed up to Snakehead Ridge via a rambling route, south up Neal Creek Canyon. Squal is a nice impressionable lad, easily convinced to leave his perfectly good bike and hop aboard my KLR sidecar, which I had yet to get around to servicing



We found a little snow up on top, but for the most part the roads were clear



Exhibiting hubris unwarranted, I left my tools and survival kit on the other bike(calm down Andy. I did have my shovel and saw, compass, maps, matches and toilet paper. I was arrogant not ignorant)



Unfortunately, what I needed was tire spoons and a patch kit. In the dry bag. On the other bike. At home.





We managed to ride several miles out of the hills on a completely flat tire. No damage, no walking, no foul! I love Kenda K270 tires! Cheap, reasonable traction on a variety of surfaces and TOUGH!
