Tubeless Tire Repair
Flat tires occurred on both the fall ‘97 ride to Kings Canyon National park (see the trip report) and on ‘98 spring ride to Death Valley (picture). This makes at least one of our riders nervous, especially when two of the plugs in the BMW plug kit were torn trying to repair the Death Valley flat.
A search for a better method of plugging tires found this.
