    I'll try to meet you at Snake River @ 4pm.

    I went to Lucky Peak yesterday afternoon and the roads are good. The road to Idaho City may still be a bit sketch from the river flooding but I'd be happy to ride at an easy pace to check it out.

    Well, I didn't do any riding today at all.

    Last night, while riding home from work at 1am, my back tire felt a bit mushy. I checked today and I had another damn flat! This is the second flat in a month and with less that 500 miles on each tire!!!
    I've got some permanent patch/plugs on hand so I pulled the tire and had it fixed in about 45 minutes this afternoon. I had to go buy a compressor first but I'm thinking its gonna be worth it. It certainly would have taken longer to have a shop repair the tire and I'm sure my fix is every bit as good as their's.
    I've wanted a compressor for quite some time and it won't take many tire changes to justify the cost of my tire tools.
  4. yeah i just had a new rear mpp put on the rear today holy shiat what a difference i love em already and there not even scrubbed in yet.
    drove around fr a bit and the weaher turned crappy again high winds etc...

    You can't go wrong with the Pilot Powers unless you count being a nail magnet as going wrong ???
    I'm just glad I've got the stuff to repair them now instead of buying a 3 rear tires just to break 1000 miles this season.
  6. yeah im not a big fix the tire guy i dont trustem
