ARRGGGHHH when it rains it pours!!

Not only did I have to work late and it caused me to get caught in the rain, but my buddy noticed a large screw in my rear tire today as he was leaving on his bike. I finally got everything back together on my bike after dropping it and now a screw in my tire I have'nt even put a 1000 miles on yet. Hopefully this is the end of the bad streak!! Ok I feel better now

As long as it is not in the sidewall of the tire, just get it patched and ride it till its bald. No need to replace the tire if there is still lots of tread left.

Just pull the screw and put a mushroom and you are good to go till it wears off.

+1 Good call Joseph! We don't get to call how things are rolled out to us! We just have to ride through them the best we can!

Try a plug on that tire!

Had no choice yesterday but to ride to my buddy's shop and get my tire plugged. I will continue to roll the best I can. I hope this is it because its getting harder to make the best of my cards!! LOL No worries on my end just had to yell it out for a minute.

Some "wisdom" is to not keep using the speed-rating of the tire once it's been plugged (go down TWO!), so, let me see...

try to keep your speed BELOW 130 mph!
