Installed new grips, grip heaters and a plug for a heated vest. Should keep me riding at least until winter officially starts.

I decided to regress about 40 years and relive amateur hour by getting pinch flats in two front tubes due to carelessness. I haven't done a pinch flat mounting a tire in 15-20 years Made up for it the next day with a fine fall ride and 30 ripping miles on my 690r on wet dirt roads and trails!

With the help of a friend, layed it on it's side and slid it to solid ground.

And that was not easy.

No good story, but actually there are a lot of divers up here. If we can't get to the ocean, we still have lots of lakes to get wet. So add altitude and enriched air and you get some funky dive tables to work with.
