Again thank you for your help as well McKay I will pay you cash if that's ok?
Ill be in space 62 in a bronze GMC truck and trailer. Should be arriving early Thursday afternoon. Id be happy to bring the lever for you, just know there will be one there if you need it.
We can work out arrangements later

Tire question guys. I'm riding in on a GS 1200 and am contemplating bring my TKC80's and swapping tires once I get there.

I have done it on my XR650L and have all the tools (3 tire irons, bead buddy).

This dude makes it look easy.

Changing tires on the GS is easy. Get a real valve core removal tool, never use the silly plastic cap. But really, just change them at home. Lugging a set of tires around is a huge pain.

Yeah, I just realized that's best. I'll mount them tonight.

Agree with Tim, change them at home. 300+ miles will be a good run in for your tires before hitting dirt roads in DV.

Also, bring tire plug kit with extra plug cords and rubber cement

Make sure to inflate them to 36/40 for the trip. You can lower the pressure when you get to DV.

PSR told me while UPS will deliver, they don't like too since it is so far away. They don't even have a real address. UPS comes, they only come once a week or when they have a few packages to delivery. So it is not timely.

I had this discussion last week when I was making small talk at the gas station.

Do we have a rough mileage between fuel on this trip? I see its a 150 mile ride but is there fuel? I'm on my Husky instead of the super-tanker and fuel management will be tricky but doable.

The bike is, as always, ready and the only question left is how much extra gas I'm going to carry. (4.3 x 35mpg (street) - 10% for dirt +3% for short shifting when possible -4% for exploring = 1 extra gallon should do it) Math is hard…

Between everyone in the group we should be fine. I don't have the track, but I assume we are coming back on the hiway from Ubehebe. There's gas at Stovepipe wells, almost all the way back, but I'm guessing that is at about mile 125. Perhaps others can confirm.

Greg and I are splitting off at Ubehebe and stop up at Scotty's Castle. Any others in the group that want to do that are welcome as well.

I have a couple of liter msr bottles you're welcome to borrow and bring in your backpack. I also won't need the full gallon and a half out of my kolpin pax, so you're welcome to half a gallon there.
