it is off i-64 "exit 205 bottoms bridge exit. Turn left and continue until you see the shopping center on your right. We will assemble there for a brief safety instructions before departing @ 11a.m.

jhva will be leading the ride since i am (rusty gross) still on the injured reserve list and i will be in my truck to enjoy the festivities & the scenic back roads to the "rocco's smokehouse " in williamsburg will be the final stopping point after the ride. You can eat there and then continue your own ride or head home to watch football and enjoy your day with the family. That is your choice. Jhva says the average prices are in the $8-10 dollar range and up. Ordering will be from your choice on the menu..this is just a fun thing to do and is not any official ride so feel free to bring your friends .

you're not going to carry a big C clamp in your panniers, but you can carry a bead popper as part of your tire service kit.
Guess I need to see one of you guys in action. After our last bead-popper pep talk I did make it work, but wouldn't call it fast and easy. Do you carry a little mallet in your mobile kit? I tried zip tying my 3 small travel tire irons together to use as a hammer but that was not too effective. Having to also carry a mallet defeats the purpose. Just as well carry a C-clamp.

On tube tires I've decided that the "3-tire-iron, pry bead away from rim", aka Boon-Booni method is as good (or better) than the bead popper and no additional tools required. Still toting the bead popper as backup though since it's so small/light.

Guy needs to schedule a tutorial, it really is fast and easy.


it's all i use in the shop anymore, have changed dozens of tires. i'm also 100% confident that i can do any tire work on the side of the road if necessary. i thought about getting a tire machine, then decided why bother.

hitting the popper with tire irons won't get it.

I'd have to see it to believe it....I suspect the Heidenau K60 (rear) would laugh at the bead popper...

I've seen jdRocks use that little bead popper on our way back from W. Va one day. He had that tire changed in no time. I've not had the same luck with it, but I know it works well.

Doesn't everyone need a tent peg mallet to pound the stakes into that hard WVa rock.

forgot about that. the tire work was easy, but what i remember most was the 100 pirates riding by without stopping to see if we might need help, then Paul, a KLR rider, stops without hesitation. it was automatic for him, a completely different mindset.

i got to try out my shop built trail jack.

Too late. Left Sykesville in snow/sleet/freezing rain this morning. Just getting out of their subdivision was a PITA. Not sure I would have made it without 4WD. Route 32 south was a disaster. Cars/trucks all over the place and in ditches.

I headed south when I got to 29, and it was pretty bad off right out of the chute, but by the time I got near Silver Springs there was nothing but a driving rain and the roads were pretty clear. 495 was pretty clear of yuk and traffic, but traffic backed up near Springfield (as usual), and it was hit and miss all the rest of the way home. Got here about an hour ago,

Wife and younger daughter are staying put and are going to try and get out of there tomorrow. Wife said they have a little over 3" there now, and it was still coming down.
