Tube finally IN!

So after the snow, & alot of debris on the road, I got a nail puncture. Plugged it from outside, then in with mushroom plug. (brand new tire).

After much gnashing of teeth, I broke down and bought a tube at a harley shop.

Tire has been on & off rim 5-6 times but now on with tube. Hopefully good solution for the life of this tire. Good thing to have a tire change machine and much determination.

100% the same. The bridgestone was pretty stiff to begin with. At least now I get to use it.

That's good, deffiently better than buying a new tire. Went to cycle gear last night to get a new front and saw a tire there with a wrench sticking through the sidewall of a rear. I asked about it and the guy ran over it on the highway, punctured the contact patch and went partially out the sidewall. I should have taken a picture.

Damn...
There is a joke in there, but to tired at the moment to come up with anything.

How long did it take to get the correct tire pressure?
