Friday night I was out for a tootle with my girlfriends and we were hitting the moto zen groove when my friend noticed something shiny on my tire. At first she thought it was bird poop, but on closer inspection it was a nail. So that curtailed the rest of my ride. I am glad it didn't do the tire in, particularly when I was zinging down the highway at speed. Motorcycle Man popped the tire off and took it to the dealer and they repaired it for $54, money well spent, the mechanic fixes all the tired for the race bikes in town.
