Dallas area flat repair

Hoping for some good info here. Where is the best place to get my flat tire repaired with reasonable pricing? It's a tubed rear tire. I understand that it's recommended to replace the tube rather than patch it. What's the best place to purchase a tube? Thanks.

The first motorcycle place you can find?

If you are stranded, post up where you are and I bet an inmate near you can help.

You really should have some tire spoons and an extra tube and a small air compressor on your bike.

Find any motorcycle dealer if you need a tube quick, prices are about the same everywhere and not much better online... Trick is finding the right size for bigger bikes since most stuff out there is for dirt bikes.

He may be a smart ass but he's right. Most tires are easy to replace unless its a big motha.
