All 5 flats I ve lucked out . 4 happen 3 or min after I stopped doing hwy speeds and end up in town doing 35 or so. Last time was close Patch gave out 4 seconds after I exited hwy was going 75 Mph hauling to get a fairy 20 seconds before that. Was doing 40 MPh and off throdel. Just road it off into the grass in the conner of the exit and pushed to the gas station 1 block away and fixed it. The first time I was run off the road in my first year of riding 25 years ago I had trouble for 3 days driving my bike. 1 st day was the worst came to tight coners and just froze up.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting WHAT A RUSH, WHAT A RIDE.
