Jawk, I'll be up there riding but not staying the night as I have to be home for other stuff that night. Do know of a couple of locals who are though.

See you up there should be a good day with all this rain we are getting.

Hey Jawk, if you still have an '11 model 250 with black rims, then we have the same bike.
And I swear to God, the best thing I have bought is Stubby Pro tire levers from RMATV.
They are some type of super strong plastic, and when used according to the instructions, the easiest way to change a tire ever.
I've got heaps of metal levers, 15 inchers, spoons, plain motion pros, and they all need some sort of rim protection.
The stubby Pros do not.
You just get in there and lever the tire off. No scratching, no gouging, easy as.
I've also bolted a tire changer to my bike trailer spare wheel. Makes it so much easier than the floor.

Hope this helps.
And enjoy the ride this Saturday!
