you care to explain, even distracted , how you lost a tire iron inside the tire.....

Ask the dog. He made me do it.

He's not very brave and anytime the compressor starts up he practically jumps into my lap.

Sorry, I'm not taking this from the guy who can't even put his fuel pump connectors on right, and gets stranded 1/2 a mile down the road regularly.

All I know is it happened. It's probably not a good idea to have three tire irons around to do the job if two is enough. With three it's too easy to lose track of one, but still have enough to do the job. And then when you start wondering where that third one is, and after looking everywhere, the only other place to check is the tire itself.

Anyway, it's good practice - I can mount and dismount a tire in no time at all. The Mitas E07s are quite easy to spoon on.

Nothing like the Pirelli Scorpions I had to put on our G450X. I gave up and took those to Jesse at Premier Cycle and even he had a hard time with them, tire changing machine and all.

Yah, I'm not sayin' I'm not capable of something similar.

In years past, I've been known to reinstall a rear wheel and forgetting the spacer on one side, ruining the brake rotor in short order.

Another time, I reassembled a carburetor and forgot the needle valve under the float. Couldn't figure out why gas was always pissing out the overflow.... mind you, I couldn't have been more than 12 years old at the time. The wheel spacer, well, I was definitely older than 12, and I wasn't drunk.

I just got back from NC/Tenn this morning after a 17 hour drive. Buddy and I did the dragon again on Monday, but found the true Dirt Dragon as well. That DualSport Dragon map is a little out of date, as some roads are closed now and others have some Tarmac. We stayed at the Ironhorse, and I recommend it again HIGHLY. I have some great GoPro video, minus the water droplets, but I still have to edit them.




On a funnier note, I snapped this pic of a guy on a Beemer in Pennsylvania on my way home....he had to stick to the right side or get clipped.... :)
