if it's still light out, i will grab a pic facing the other way on that road and it should help some.
gravel on street tires?

Haha. Yeah I know. I have only about 8 months of riding under my belt and not many on gravel.

That video reminds of riding my 950SE. Never got more than 1,700 miles out of a rear tire...
There are entirely too many bikes in that garage.

Do you have someone coming with gas? I can come out if needed.

No need for clues. The pic did it for me...as usual.

Thanks bob. I had my son Ben aka punk #2 with me. I sent him home for gas. The low fuel light came on 2 miles before she shut off.

After a fuel rescue from my son i was on my way again....



Grab. 651 Pouts Hill Road. Strasburg






I guess today just wasn't my lucky day. Here is what happened when i pulled away from the grab



This is how far i made it


A quick roadside bolt tightening and I was on my way for the 3rd time today...........

And.....for the new tag.....go to where my bike ran out of gas and find the tree near my bike. Look in the tree's vagina for Rudy

Good thing the bolt hadn't come all the way out. That would have really sucked!
