SOMETIMES YA JUST WANT A QUICKIE. Like today. Up early. Quick change. Out the door... riding into a beautiful rising sun.
But, sometimes ya oughtta take a moment to look over yer twowheeled pleasure craft.
Which I didn't.
Nor did I notice my tires were a bit splashy <- Jason Bourne quote there.
Not until I'd climbed rather high up above town on the rutted fire road... and I didn't even notice it on the climb. Traction was quite good, as you'd expect with low pressure.
No, it wasn't until I was downbound on a trail called Kamikaze... coming up just short on a bunny hop... that I realized I'd forgotten to air up.
Now I was air down... burped out about 20 pounds.
Texted Frank who lives nearby... nada.
Called my lovely, quarantined daughter, who quickly rescued me with a pump... but alas, it was more damaged than I could do roadside.
I never curse the gods upon the rare mishap... too many times I've come upon tragedy, thinking If this or that hadn't a happened, that coulda been me.
My loss is your gain...
