Not a great way to start the day

I was stopped at the stop sign this morning, and accelerated pretty heavily to make a lefthand turn onto a main road. For the first time on the bike, the back end 'broke loose' so I throttled back a bit thinking I hit some gravel or water. Then I hit the gas again and it started breaking loose again, so I kinda figured what was going on. Pulled over and confirmed the back tire was losing air.

So I nursed it slowly to the nearest gas station, fired up their air machine, and found the hole.

Good thing I had my handy plug kit in the tail bag.

It was about time for new tires anyway.

Glad you didn't "go down"...!
