stevec677 - Basically, about two days out I used the Hotel computer to search for dealers along my planned route. Than at breakfast I made a bunch of phone calls. Found a dealer with the my tire choice (Roadsmarts) and made an appointment. For my next trip I will definitely consider a stiffer longer life tire, as I found I didn't push my riding near as much as I do on my local terf.
Here are the stats from my CC ride. I changed tires in Bend OR.
27 nights (1 camping).
9,357 miles total.
est, 230 miles in rain gear.
1 oil change.
est. 225 gallon of gas.
2 sets of tires.
1 killed pheasant.
Countless thousands of killed grasshoppers and other insects.
1,428 pictures taken.
120 mph top speed.
Some of the best vacation time I ever spent.
