New tires!

 

I'm sure I will enjoy the new jacket in the Colorado mountains but yesterday was a real bear with all the humidity. "Breathable" is a relative term!

 

Anyone else having to buy a "few" things for the trip?

When I first read the title of your post I thought it said "I sold my wife because it cost too much to go to the Un" blush.giftongue.gif. Freudian slip of the mind, I guess.

 

My wife is happy to see me go away! thumbsup.gif

 

So, to answer your question, I bought all that stuff last year before my Canadian Rockies "on the cheap" ride! Ha! This year it's just tires and general maintenance, thank goodness!

I'm afraid they don't bring much on the open market, it's actually a net loss. Don't ask how I know..... tongue.gifcrazy.giftongue.gifdopeslap.gif
