to put the bodywork and bags back on.
Ran into a little snag on Saturday when the new rear tire leaked through the sidewall. Kinda disappointing as it was one of the last of the discontinued RoadRunners; I'd been hoarding it for months to install for the rally.
I ran up to my local bike shop and picked up two Venom X's, one to run and one to put on the back wheel from the yellow bike to take to St Louis as a spare. I've been running one on the yellow bike for the last couple of months and after around 5k it's less than 25% worn, so it should be fine for the duration, but you never really know until you run it all the way down.
