ShovelStrokeEd Posted November 8, 2009 Share Posted November 8, 2009 Nice ride yesterday from Bowling Green to Knoxville. Perfect weather, decent back roads, took it easy and just enjoyed the precision of the Tuono. Got up this morning with every intention of going out and playing slightly SE of here. Bike is steering like a truck. Hmmmmm, tire pressure must be down a bit. I'll just head over to the Cycle Gear and air it up. Looked the tire over while doing so and couldn't find any faults. Get it up to 38 lbs and call it good. Stop to chat a bit with a couple of guys who rolled up on a Can Am Spyder. Just for grins, I checked the air again before riding off and it was down 2 PSI in less than an hour. More careful peeking around found the nail. I don't believe in plugs except in dire emergency. New Russo, 190/50-17 $240, mounted. Pit Bull rear stand, $150. Misc tools to pull caliper, loosen chain, break loose rear axle nut, $50. 9.25% TN sales tax (WTF?) and I'm over $450. First flat in about 10 years but I'm gonna complain anyway. Grrrrrrr! Link to comment
