So after getting my third flat in a week and two pieces of glass stuck in my hand I had to dig out with an exacto knife in the course of filming for my battle videos I finally sucked up 20 bucks and went to lowes and bought myself a pushbroom. I proceeded to spend about an hour sweeping up the area of the lot that I ride in. All in all I think I swept up around 25-30 lbs worth of dust, sand, and gravel from my spot. I didn't go back out to ride, but I can't wait to see how different is is now that it isn't so rough. Here are some pictures I took on my phone of the kind of semi-before and after shots.
I had gotten most of the rubble out of the way around this point, but you can still see the line where I haven't gotten to yet.
That's a huge freakin' crack down the middle that I can't cross without getting stuck on. That's about as far as I go in my links and for how big the place is, I really don't have a lot of room. The section on the right is where I ride and it is cleaned off at that point. The section on the left is where I used to ride before it started getting REALLY bad. The left isn't swept, the right is. Big difference!
You can still see where there are "lines" of dust and what not in the lot that I just didn't get. I was exhausted at this point because I really had to press down into the asphalt to get all the gravel out. After a good rain what is left will end up dispersing throughout the area anyway and it won't be as prominent.
This is my tire right now. It's about 5-6 days old. I usually change it when pieces start coming off of it. But it's cool because....
I keep a lot of spares.
Still need to pick up all the clutter from papers and rummaging through books and other things after my final exams, but I will get around to that later.
Anywho, yeah, that's my spot, my tires, and my plight.
