So...I babied it back to civilization. Rim was already screwed so I rode on it with shredded tube and tire doing a crawl of shame. And any time the trail was a little off camber it got interesting because with the flat tire the front of the bike wanted to slide the direction of the camber. Had a couple of interesting hills I had to make it up and then back down with the tire wanting to slide out from under me the whole time.
Anyways...I decided to try and do it up right and make it the nice little dual sporter that I want it to be and really try to enjoy the hell out of it. Got the bike back home and went to work.
Aside from a Big Bore and Cams...I think I will wait until next spring for something like that, what am I missing or what recommendations does anyone have???
