Should it be bumped?

I am so embarrassed by the Gloucester people.

Go get it.

The bank had 104 F in Hayes this afternoon. Mesh is great.

Rear Anakee 2 tire on rim. Just have to balance and install the wheel the morning. Easy bead to seat.

Wish I had a tire changer.

I have 6 rim protectors. Three tire irons. A Stop&Go type bead breaker before Stop&GO labeled it. Bottle of NAPA bead soap. For balancing I have an old chair and adjustable rolling shop stool

MCN had an artilcle on bead breakers. The Stop&Go is heavy but works. The best way to use it is to break one side. Lever the bead over and then break the other. I put bicycle tube on the ends to protect the rim but need something thicker. he Vstrom rims are very light.

I offered the use of my no-mar tire changer to the Richmond folks. Any of you guys are welcome to use it too. It's a piece of cake to change a tire, especially street tires. Dual sport tires are a little harder. I live about 5 miles north of west point. Let me know....

Thanks for the offer. I always think about asking a fellow inmate but am too lazy.

But I needed to tr it with my hand tools in case I needed to do it on the road. I was happy the bead was easy to seat. It was easier than on the old Seca. The NAPA bead soap works better then dish washing soap for me.

Gonna try the Mill Creek Inn (The Colonial Golf Club-was a Tag location for HR and for Williamsburg TOR) tonight. We have a 630p reservation.

Thumb

Food was good. Huge portions. We were upstairs overlooking the golf course. They said we needed reservations but not sure why since the place was pretty near empty.
