Wheels, beer and the inevitable

Swapping the tires I ran in Death Valley, Karoo 3's for the MT21/D606 combo for the Desert 100 poker run this weekend.

Notes:
1. I friggin love the Bridgestone UHD tubes....
2. I friggen HATE the Bridgestone UHD tubes when I don't have a valve stem fishing tool....
3. Drinking beer thins your blood
4. Yes, you can get 4 bandaids on 4 fingers from one tire change.
5. Looks like I bent my front rim way more than I thought, running it, but it ain't round no more.
6. See point 1, it looks like it should've been a pinch flat.
7. Looks like I need to make a call to woody

isn't that how you are supposed to lube the rims and get the tubes in? I use beer for everything since I have always one handy. Great to put grips on too

That is how an inmate told me to perform the oil change, seemed ligit to me:

Is there a procedure for changing the oil and filter for the 800 twin?
1- open cold beer
2- remove aftermarket skid plate if applicable and finish beer
3- repeat step 1
4- unscrew drain plug and let oil drain while drinking cold beer
5- unscrew oil filter and let drain
6- sit back and admire bike while finishing beer
7- repeat step one
8- spin on new filter and install drain plug
9- pour in oil
10- check dipstick and take a leak behind the garage
11- start up bike and repeat step 1
12- shut off bike and check dipstick
13- finish cold beer
14- repeat step 1 as needed

That must be in the owners manual because that is the way I do it also. I think it says it takes 3 quarts of oil and a 6 pack of beer to change the oil.

Personally I think that you need a step 1a....... Drink beer.
