Video: New How to Fix and Adventure Tips Series - The Trail Doctor
Thanks for the props on the photos, appreciated. This series will vary in subject matter as I dip into my worldly-wise 30+ years of riding fat tires around the world.. my aim is to divulge some lesser known tech tips and simplify the how-to for the everyday rider. There'll be some adventure tips coming next...

Have a ganders at my Trail Ninja episodes too (18th comes out next week.. watch this space) and you'll see my incessant, some say irritating, need for humour in our beloved sport. Glad it works for you. I am kind of proud to be a Benny Hill-alike in some perverse way.

How wide are your rims? Could be an issue, If you run the Hans Dampf, which is a wide tire, on narrow rims you risk rounding their profile and increasing the chance of pinching the side wall down on the rim bead... and pinch flatting like that too.

yep I normally leave the plastic cover on as well, but I knew if I didnt mention that you "should" remove it someone would send me death threats or something similar. Anyhow, the risk of course is that the plastic sheet doesn't stretch as much as a tube or patch does when it is inflated so restricts the expansion of the patch or even starts to pull it off (if you didnt stick it very well). At least thats the theory behind removing it. But you got it, it aint a deal breaker!

Video: Afghanistan With Matt Hunter And Dan Milner
Much as I'd have like to donate it to a local out there, I did get it back. Everywhere we went people wanted to try our bikes. In the furthest out part of the trip we were among people who'd never been on or seen a bike in the flesh before, and kids had not even held a wheel in their hands (wheels that far out are useless for locals). It was great to have them try bike riding and us to ride their horses and yaks. There was a LOT of laughter on both sides. Laughter is a great way to break boundaries. After that we drank tea together and we tried to ingest their rancid, sour Yak milk yoghurt....

Having us spend dollars locally, employ a team of 6 Afghans for 12 days, plus jeep drivers and produce shop owners is an enormous help for local families in such areas. The Wakhan is incredibly poor, with little but nomadic sheep herding for income. Our trip helped break down barriers between "us and them", they laughed at us trying to ride their horses, we cheered at them trying our bikes. There was immense respect from both sides. The Wakhan people are some of the most friendly I have ever encountered. Tourism can grow here. Money can help build schools (like the Central Asia Institute ones we passed on the drive in) that can help promote peace through education. It all starts with an exchange of experiences like this.
