Sunday I ran over something that punched a good sized hole in my rear tire.

Swapped it out on Tuesday.

Last night on the way home I swerved to avoid a car that moved into my lane and ran over a piece of plywood.

This morning, my front tire is flat...

Damn! Had to ride the BMW instead and I was looking forward to riding the FZ this morning.

So you getting new tires? Nothing a plug can fix?

And, anything to ride is better than a cage (even a BMW)- I wish I had a standby ride for such days!

I already replaced the rear as it was 2/3 of its service life and I had another rear tire already to go on.

The front tire is only about 1/3-1/2 through it's service life. Don't know the nature of the puncture yet so I don't know if I will replace it or patch it (patch it from the inside).
