Ok, I'm very new at this riding thing. Wez and I took yesterday off work to get a final ride in (for me, anyway) before I put the bike in storage so they can make it all shiney and new for Spring.
We're heading out with no problems...when, I'm thinking to myself, the wind is really beating me up. I slowed on curves, was cautious on corners...never thinking there was anything wrong with the bike, that it must be me getting tired. Ok, we're out and about with about 60+mi to get home when some kind soul points out that my tire is going flat. Crapola! Ok...now what! We make it to a gas station and fill the tire...seems to be holding air and Wez is like...let's get the heck home (not exactly in thoes words). I cautiously ride until I can tell things are getting sloppy so I slow down considerably. I make it to about 5 mi from a BMW dealer...and we head directly there, wobbling all the way. I know, T-clocs...didn't do it. Bad on me. That won't ever happen again. But I'm thinking that I should have stopped right then and there and never ridden the bike for as long as I did. I'm thinking that someone was watching over me.
My question to the experienced riders is this...
What would you have done?
I picked up a nail in the rear tire and obviously had a slow leak. Thank goodness it didn't burst while riding or I'd be much flatter today.
