Jinxed Myself ..Nail In New Rear PR3

Well just had new PR3's put on and had less than 100 miles on them. Went to Rock Store and Neptunes Net today. Leaving Rock Store and noticed a nail in the rear tire. Had a plug kit and compressor but the tire was hard so said what the hell I'll plug it tomorrow if it holds till i get home. Went to Neptunes Net had lunch then made it home.When the traffic was light keep the speed under 80mph hit 79 a couple of times. Put over 80 miles on it after spotting the nail

I got a video of the cop pulling us over i'll post after it downloads to my computer. The cops were everywhere along PCH today. Mostly pulling bikes over because of the incident of the motorcycle hitting the bicyclists recently. There calling it "Operation Safe Canyons" But its been long over due. Buttwipes on sports bikes have been running in the canyon like its a race track for some time now. I'll plug the tire tomorrow.

If you're in a convenient place to plug it, might be best to do it right away. If the tire hasn't been punctured yet much better to get the nail out first. And if it has, better to deal with it before you get a flat in an inconvenient place.

Was it punctured?
