Jay and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance at MTM 2014

MTM, Updates1 min read

Getting ready for 'Jay and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' at the second annual Motorcycle Travellers Meet - India next weekend near Bangalore.

sanDRina's rear tire has been suffering a slow leak for the past few months and I finally swapped out the inner tube, getting back in the groove of using my tire tools. I'm using a bead breaker here on my Heidenau K60 Scout tire to get access to the tube inside. The old tube was a heavy duty one from Heidenau and I've been using that since Hamburg (March 2011), all through Africa and up till now. Not a single puncture through those 46,360 km (28,812 miles)! In went another Heidenau HD tube.

I'll also be doing a Ride Skills workshop at MTM 2014, so if you've never stood on the pegs and want to gain confidence riding through sand, along with attending all the other awesome sessions planned, hit the link and register:
