Next day I went to Zoom and picked up a new tube and CO2 bottles and the little dodad to re-inflate the tire. That makes two rear flat's in 11,000 miles on the BMW.

Sorry to hear that Tony, Jeff and I split off from the group and had some fun on San Jose Soquel good Times.

Hope to see ya soon

Now I am not worried about riding alone and getting a flat on the rear then struggling to re-mount the wheel.

The only tools you need are the ones to remove the ABS sensors, wrench or socket for the rear axle nut, and wrenches for the slider bolt / lock nut. If the bike is on center stand, it helps to use your legs to hold the rear wheel in position to slide the axle in or out. Same is true for lining up the rear disc to caliper. Of course, you should make sure the brake pad are fully apart first. The wheel can be a pain but a little getting dirty and cussing are all that is required.
