Was adding air to the camper tires and noticed a sidewall split on one of the tires.

Only a year old!

Truck was already hooked up to the 5th wheeler, so I loaded up the Ural with the bad 10 ply and headed to Big O tires.

The bike is definitely a hauler!

After exorcising the Jersey Devil out of my rig. Took a ride to a local bike night. Asked if I wanted to register for a prize, so why not.
Bike took 2nd place.
Maybe if it was clean it would have taken 1st:) but you never get that Devil's Dirt completely off.

Wow, is that wilderness out back camping UK style, looks like my back yard! Just joking, but looks manicured tho. :boogie: :cheers:
HF, that is a VERY manicured camp site!

The second photo tho (Rhosgoch) is more 'wild'. Well more so.

Today: at Dinas Mawddwy. Here just arrived outside the Meirion Mill cafe.

thanks for the info, do you go mostly by yourself on your rides/camping trips? By the way i always find the names of places in the UK very strange at least to a American, not that our places don't have odd names. I.E. Dinas Mawddwy. anyway enjoy :cheers:

It be Welsh. :D if I had my English Welsh dictionary I might be able to tell you what it means.

Latterly I tend to do trips alone but still sometimes do like club camps and such.

Yesterday (Wed) she got the call... I was already taking off to do some yard work and a couple buddies invited me to help escort one of the Traveling Vietnam "Wall" tributes, basically a miniature version of "The Wall" in w@$#, DC.

Forgot about the yard work, very fulfilling and solemn:

Took the rig out for a ride to see how Sean damper was going to do. Took the pup and stopped to get gas. Got snubbed big time by a HD rider at the station. Then had to listen to an older lady talk baby talk to the Pup and me. Not sure which was worst.. LOL
The damper was great.

Friday last week:

EDIT:
Rhosgoch to Dinas Mawddwy (YouTube, 23 minutes)

Sorry uploaded again. (Previous URL not exist anymore.) >= 1 HOUR TO GO LIVE STILL UPLOADING

Result looked like total sh!te. Why does youtube have to do "processing"? Why can't it just save what it's been given? I spend much time
and trouble getting a decent compromise between picture quality and file size, and youtube fecks it up so it looks sh!te again.
Must be reducing it further. (?)
