Day 170 (0km): The Thailand tire revenge

So the plan was to put the new tires on and then hit the road. Alberto went outside to work on the bikes while I kept myself busy updating the blog. I also did a bit of research on our new tires. Turns out that they are for ice? Well it will be a great experiment then.

Outside Alberto was working his butt off trying to get the new tires on the rims. The rubber was very stiff and after the first couple of tries he was worried he wasn't going to be able to get the tires on! The 2hr job turned into more of a 5hr job. And by the time he was done, he was physically done as well so we spent another night at Casa Carito.
