Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Sunday was out riding with some friends and we rode down alone the Mississippi River. The road had alot of grooves and cracks in it so the bike felt uneasy to begin with. I started to get that "Hula" feeling to it coming from the back tire. You know that feeling? Like holding on to a firm feelin woman? Ya, that good felling. Well I realized I was getting a flat tire so I got the bike slowed and pulled into a wayside rest. I pulled out a two and a half inch nail! I got HOG membership but I was 74 miles from the house so it would have cost me a arm and a leg to get it home. My buddy has AAA and he made the call and it ended up costing me nothing. I was the first flat tire I have had in 27 years of riding, so I can't complain. LOL, I had to work my butt off to make conversation with the flatbed driver! I got home, a friend called and wanted a ride, so I hopped on Painless (my shovelhead) and had a good day....

I have had 3 flats over the years. 2 of them I was riding with friends so we took the tire off and I stayed with the bike while they went to have it patched. The 3rd I was alone in Iowa about midnight miles from nowhere. About 2 am a state trooper came by and he knew of a guy who "fooled around with bikes". He went woke the man up, brought him back with a patch kit and a hand pump and the three of us patched the tire on the side of the road. Nice people in Iowa.
