    ... and it had nothing to do with gravel. Better to find out today than Thursday, though.... not 100% sure, but it looks like I'll be trying Rokko on Thursday, maybe starting at the end of the airport at around noon, Kevin.

    What happened to the pump?

    No idea... it just started seizing up. Worked fine one moment, wasn't worth diddly the next.

    Definitely a curse. But my theory is that when those things happen you are actually being saved from something worse. The work of a guardian angel.

    Yup. Was blessed to have Mansek (and his tools and knowledge) with me. Already have two new tires on the bike, and a pump ordered for delivery tomorrow.
