Where The Rubber Meets The Road

Well, at the end of Stage 11 today, Steve has decided to go ahead and change out Rose’s front tire.  It is still showing abnormal tire wear and it’s only a matter of time  There are only 5 more days to go to the Grand Finish, so tonight Rose got a new tire on the front!

They ride to the Bonneville Salt Flats tomorrow and will stop for a panoramic picture. Tomorrow’s stage will be 298 miles and will end at 5th Gear Powersports in Elko, Nevada.

As I finish this up and Steve calls, he decides to walk out to the motorcycle trailer and sit while talking to me.  Just as he starts telling me about his evening, the front tire blows on Rose.  Yes, the tire he just put on in these pictures.  So luck was on his side that he went out to the trailer to talk to me.  Needless to say our conversation was finished as he had to go to work to get ready for the morning, and fix the flat he got in the trailer just now!    Talk to you tomorrow!
