My Pic Of The Day
 
Post your pic of the day....where ever the mood of the moment takes you.

Something stumbled over on the WWW --- something from a ride-report somewhere... some great shot that got you stirred up... some memory of a great day/ ride/ trip/ moment....whatever.

Anything that starts the dreams and maybe makes the feet twitch.
(hang in there, Willo! :bt)

Thread's a sticky....and here's a kickoff.


Passo di Stelvio, Italy, Tornanti 1, 2007

I'm sure there'll be a 1/2" thick sheet of stickers over the top of that one by now...

Yep all safe and sound, once I realised I pulled over at a servo and got a tow from there. The bike felt really weird when I got on it, I thought it was my mind just playing tricks on me. Once I pulled over the problem was pretty obvious. Having a flat rear feels heaps different to a flat front.

The flat rear makes turning into corners feel wrong, the back will step out further and then buck back in when you're pull up straight.

The front on the over hand you'll know straight away, steering becomes difficult and you'll be in a constant state of tank slapping. Atleast that's what I found.

Here's a video of what I pulled out of it! I'm glad it was something rather than the tube just rubbing through.

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nynpjGEf9zc[youtube]

I pulled the tube out tonight replaced it and plugged the hole with a rope. Job's done. Looking forward to the ride tomorrow. But damn Pete you make changing a tyre look easy.
