Oh yeah, I feel the stupid nail pain. Last year - or it may have been a few years ago - I was putting some miles on my wife's new Honda CTX700 so we could get the first service out of the way. I was cruising the back roads when I began to think we had bought a lemon. The bike seemed unwilling to turn left although it didn't mind turning right. It confused and bothered me until I realized the virtually brand new, and huge, rear tire had been impaled by an enormous nail near the sidewall/tread demarcation line.
Eventually managed to get the local Honda dealer to come get it and then gritted my teeth when we had to replace the tire. Oh no sir, it's not repairable. The good news is that we managed to get almost 300 miles out of the OEM rear tire! Oh wait, that's not good news at all is it?! Stupid nail!
