Took my 10 out today for my first ride of the year, did about 80 miles got back and found my rear tire was punctured, what luck. I am seriously pissed right now. I just put it on half way through last season.

Yeah, but if you can't race it or screw it, there is no reason to keep it

What about a patch/plug combo to save it?

I've always wondered how well those would hold up...

If you wouldn't think twice about getting a new one, I don't blame you.

Thanks Tee, how's life treating you these days, last time I checked you were deployed. And on the patch note, I have plugged one tire to get it home, I don't recommend it. Also no shop here will do it I called them all

Hell yeah they did, it sucks. I have been out here a year, the sad thing is that I am pretty good at it even though I don't try, at all. Recruiting is awful. And I am far from any Army post, we have some National Gaurd in town, I have never seen so many fat "soldiers". 2 years left,
