Cooling with puddle water seems to work only in short term

So far, I'm liking Tubliss enough that I think it was worth the money. Flat-fixer seems like to be able to plug his tires a dozen times before feeling the need to change the racing slick out for fresh knobs.

Waiting "patiently" again.

Unfortunately my GoPro decided it would rather stay in Kentucky and departed my helmet. :frustrated: :censored: So, no videos.

It was a great ride and there was already talk of doing it again. I would definitely be up for another ride on the KAT!!

Thanks, Skinny-J, for setting this up and being an amazing KAT-herder! The trip was great -- the route was fantastic and the company was fabulous.

I already got new saddlebags (The Rigg Gear Adventures that I think Nobody had), and I did find my brand new GPS, which I'd put inside a bag with my clothes before bringing it up to my room. I'm looking forward to the next one!

I've got these https://wolfmanluggage.com/products/end ... addle-bags
Just older model.

The bottom straps show some minor wear, i think next time will adjust them to sit on different spot and the bags will last very well
