fixing a motorcycle flat tire in the desert

Dual-sport motorcycle riders participating in the "nOObs Rally" organized by members of ADVrider.­com (Adventure Rider forum).­

We stumbled upon them in Saline Valley (in Death Valley National Park).­ One of them had a flat tire on his KTM, and they were fixing it.­

They were amazed that we were driving on this remote and very rugged dirt road, with a passenger on my old KLR 650 motorbike, loaded like a mule with camping gear, water and tools.­
