The layout

We tried to accumulate mechanical needs for all the bikes to resolve in the dim, flickering light of a campfire. To Jeremy’s skewed cowling I added my USB connector finally broken off earlier today by the bouncing front brake cable. I should have been smarter about the placement.


I lay out the OBR ADV Gear work mat and tool roll from my sometime riding buddy Michael and start wrenching. Since riding isn’t affected, Jeremy decides to leave well enough alone. His cowling is already held together with stressed metal, tape and zip ties. We’d probably make it worse (unusually mature thinking on our part).


Joel, for his part, lets us down by having no issues at all. Try harder next year. We don’t carry eight (okay, maybe two) pounds of tools for nothing.
