We got into Battle Mountain the night before too late to try to find a 17″ tube for Paul, and his 21″ tube in the rear wheel flatted twice more on today’s ride. After the second flat Paul installed my 18″ tube and that lasted through the rest of the trip. It was actually pretty hot in the middle of the day for changing tubes but Paul knocked them out in record time.
The second flat occurred after riding on NV 225 for a short distance. Just as Paul was wrapping up the repair a pickup truck pulled over. I think that was the only vehicle that passed by while we were stopped. We motioned that we didn’t need help but the driver popped out anyway. His name was Paul Conrad and he was a ranch mechanic from Owyhee. He hung out and talked motorcycles with us for 15 minutes. We didn’t run across a lot of people on this ride, but the ones that we did meet were all super friendly.
Rides: KLR650, KX250
