Imagine my excitement... NOT!

Right now the trike is sitting in the garage with a flat tyre. Said tyre has done about 2,500Ks, has vertical cuts in both sidewalls and probably needs to be replaced. Fortunately I have a couple of spares on hand. Its late at night, and I'll do it in the morning before I head off. 

The good news is that its the right tyre which can be changed in place, ie relatively easily.

The bad news is that the rear tyre (which so far is fine) went on when this one did...and can't be changed in place.

EDIT 30/8: Done. And with remarkably little in the way of cursing and general profanities. :)
