I'll be there. It's a fun show with some really nice bikes. Skip is bringing his recently restored Wassell.

OK, I'll be there, with my finacee. I'd like to meet some people while I'm there, I'm new to Tucson, and new to Dual Sport riding. If you see me, say hello.

Me:



That's up on Mt Lemmon.

Russ,

it was nice meeting you, I now have a face to put to a name, and someone to look for if I ever make it to the RG.

Hopefully I'll have the time to do a ride with you guys sometime soon.

Free stuff for a Tucson inmate

I've got a 2-ton floor jack that I would like to have disappear from my garage.

I know I could just leave it out by the curb and have this happen but I don't want to do that.

The jack is old but it works, I just don't need an extra.

I'm at Speedway and Craycroft

I also have some Wix oil filters that fit the new Fiat 500s. I'd guess these would also fit the new Dodge Dart with the 1.4 engine but have no idea.

Part number is Wix 57341

I'm running back and forth to Sierra Vista all this week, but send me a PM if you want some of this stuff and can come pick it up.

Edit: Floor jack has been spoken for.

Anyone know of any shops in Tucson that can manage to remove a tire from a Ducati wheel without scratching up my wheel and do a good patch/plug job? I'll just be bringing in the wheel so no need for them to be able to remove it from the bike. I just got 1/2 a C-clip through my rear tire (that only has 200 miles on it) this past weekend. I don't track the bike and would like to give a patch plug a shot. Everybody I called in Sierra Vista and On Any Moto in Tucson claimed they don't to repairs "because of liability". Figured I'd give this one final shot to see if any shops will do the work before trashing a new tire.

Can't help with shop question as I've never had a tire repaired by someone else. Not sure what a c-clip is but do you want to patch it or plug it? I've gotten punctures on two tires that were nearly new. Plugged them myself and proceeded to put about 10k miles of each of those tires. Of course plugging also does not involve removing the wheel. Plugging depends a little on what part of the tread is punctured but plenty reliable and I'd only resort to patching if it can't be plugged.

+1. I got a screw in my BMW tire and plugged it. Then put on 11,000 more miles. I know it's a liability issue with shops, but I've had great luck with plugs. I bought several high quality plug kits from 4 wheel drive shops and won't travel without them. Even in my truck and my wife's car.
You don't need to buy a new tire.

Appreciate the advice. I'd prefer to have the tire pulled and a patch plug inserted from the inside, but since no shops seem comfortable doing that I'll pull the plug that's in it now and get a quality one and give it a shot.

Question

Hey, looks like you have a strong riding group in Tucson! My job is bringing me out there for a week or two at a time over the next six months or so and I'll be looking to ride. I will be making the trip on my R1150RT at some point (coming from Huntsville, Alabama) but would prefer to fly and then rent my first time or so. Is there anywhere in Tucson I can rent a bike, preferably a BMW? I'd love to try out n R1200RT and R1200GS on someone else's nickel!

I also ride off road and it looks like there are a lot of places to ride out there. I may drive my Expedition at some point and bring my Husky, but again, might be easier to rent a capable dual sport. I'm guessing most of the local trails are less technical than the muddy, rocky, steep, leaf-hidden, root-infested single-track I usually ride here in the Southeast but I'd love to be proven wrong.

John

How about just buying a bike out here to use when you're here?

Don't know of any options here in Tucson.

I'm sure that can be arranged.




HTM and Nightstalker to the self flagellation courtesy phone, you have a call holding on line 1.





Lots of outstanding riding here. When's your first trip?

I have thought about that. I guess I could rent a storage unit and keep it in there or something. Sell it when the effort is done. I am looking forward to riding out there from here, though. Never done a long trip like that before.

Familiar with Iron Horse Motorcycles? They seem to be a BMW dealer in Tucson. I can't tell if this rental service is part of them or not--> http://www.arizonamotorcyclerental.com/index.html

There's a shop here, ZMW, that offers bike storage. They'll keep the bike ready to go, so you don't have to worry about carb cleans/flats/etc while the bike is in storage. Plus most storage places frown on combustibles being put into storage, like the gas in your tank.
