Why can't someone design scews that won't point straight up when you run over them? I think you woulsd make millions if the tire companies just bought out your patent to keep their business strong. I go out to ride to the store and the bike is hard to roll.WTF! I look and their is a sheet rock screww in it all the way in. Looks undamaged so I know that I ran over it somewhere near my house when I came home. I also know that it had to come from the currently remodeling homes across the street. How else would I get it so close to home? That sucks! Any way I just put a plug in it so that I can use it to commute to work next week after 25 days off. I know everyone says don't do it but I have done it before and it lasts the life of the tire. Well here's to a great 4th of July and I hope everyone else has better luck than me!:thumbsup:

umm...no joking here...just put on a brand new set of tires 2 years ago on my Buell, rode it home...garaged it.....yup...you guessed right...both front and back tires had nails in them....Maybe someone hated that damn bike sooo much that they snuck in in the middle of the night and banged them in?? Or...d'ya think I was right behind a truck that was carrying a load of nails to the nail salesman at Home Depot?
