    Do you have a picture showing the fairing?

    I have patched tube type tires with a sticky worm plug and had it hold long enough for a proper fix. Can't say it would work every time but it has worked for me.

    The R nineT has tubes. You can't plug the tire.

    That is of course the big advantage of either alloy wheels, or wheels sealed for tubeless tires....worth the cost IMO.

    But then again, I had a valve stem break once [alloy wheel/tubeless tire] and still sat for two days waiting for a dealer to open.

    I have had stems fail a couple of times. Which is why I now carry spare stems, tire irons and a big C clamp when we travel. I now have steel stems on my K75 and R1150R. New rubber stems every tire on everything else.

    This past weekend Lisa and I went searching for more of the old air mail “concrete arrows” from the 1920’s. http://www.citylab.com/work/2015/02/...arrows/385472/

    The first beacon (#61A) required some serious uphill hiking to reach. The Great Salt Lake is visible in the background and the “arrow" points the way to Salt Lake City. This “arrow” was unique as it has two tails and a single “point”.




    The next (beacon #59) is located approx. 25 miles to the west near I-80. This “arrow” shows some remnants of blue and red paint.




    Our last find (beacon #58) was another 20 miles further west and is about a mile uphill on the north side of I-80. We were surprised to find the “arrow” had a recent coat of chrome yellow paint. Someone ust still find this marker useful.




    Again, this “arrow” points the way east to Salt Lake City.
