STC- Thanks for the Memories

Well, I should have listened to the experts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Made it to a tiny burg call ChillHowie VA.

As I'm about to walk into Mickey D's for some lunch, someone says, "Hey Mister, check out your tire!"

Sure enough- THREADS. Not just one batconh but several! Damned lucky it didn't blowout on me.

I spend the next two hours trying to find a #$%^ Tire for the LT from every BMW/Harley/Honda dealer within 100 miles. NUTTIN!

Bobs BMW has one but they can't install it until Tuesday! So much for leaving early.

Waiting on a tow to Maryland! Thank goodness for towing insurance!

Had a great time riding with you guys in the Southeast! I had a blast!

Enjoy the Prime Rib and CBS tonight.

Forget that. Once the rider is at the event it may be too late. We may have to start requiring pre-departure (from home) tire checks. Notarized, of course.

Let us know how it worked out, Rob.
