Philly to Canada – day 16
Started out as an easy day riding.
We climbed bear mountain in NY which was cool. Then headed home.
About 50 miles north of Philly I got a flat front tire. Shit. So… We sat in a gas station and had a nice gas station dinner… Then I filled the tube with green slime which kinda worked a tiny bit.
Rode all the way home on barely any tire pressure at all which was super sketchy. Right when I got off our exit into Philly the bead broke which disabled me from riding at all. So I limped it to cast and salvage and then drank a beer. Real glad that bead didn’t break on 95 when I was going fast. Lesson learned… Don’t ride on a tire with barely any tire pressure.

New To Me: 1978 KZ1000
I’ve been looking to buy a KZ900/1000 for sometime now. I’ve searched on and off and was a bit discouraged by the condition and asking price for these bikes. After recently driving 4+ hours round trip to NYC to look at one that turned out to be a piece of shit I came across this […]
If it had to happen, I’m glad it happened when you were almost home. You guys are great and run a great site.
Sounds (and looks) like you had an amazing trip! Thanks for sharing.
Welcome back fellas
If you don’t arrive home beat down and doubting why you even do this at all, you haven’t had a full experience.
Success. In every sense.
