Talked to another guy at the halfway point campground that lost 2 tires 50 miles apart. He ended up changing all his out because they were dry rotted, and he didnt know.....he probably never looked at them.
Thats all. Just a reminder to check your tires out.
Every spring I have the dealer check tires, brakes, and bearings. It costs me a little money but those are things that I can't check easily (well except tires) and can make for a bad trip if any of them fail.
This last checkup they found an issue with a brake and had it replaced under warranty.
Everything riding on top of the frame, I can handle
