Just make sure you have good tires!

LOL, truth!


Well said.  I can laugh now but wasnít in Oct. 2012.  We left Potosi for a nice leisurely ride.  Planned on getting back for the Rally festivities around 4 PM.  Didnít happen.  My rear tire wore down to the cords.  2:30 on a Saturday afternoon looking desperately for a rear tire. Found one 50 miles SW in the wrong direction.  Bob rode ahead to get to the dealer before they closed. Got a speeding ticket 3 miles from the dealer.  I waited for the tow truck. Local tire shop in the town where we bought the tire opened up to put the tire on.  Very nice fellow.  On the road back to Potosi by 8 PM.  Had about 200 miles to ride back to the campground.  Got back just  before midnight.  Pulled up to our tent when the storm hit.  Had been watching it coming in as we rode on dark unfamiliar roads.  Oh what an adventure that weekend was. Here is a picture of me on my nearly bald tires. Before my day went to hell.
