    I almost had a bad day

    No idea where I picked it up or how long it stayed with me, I wandered around for about 3hrs this afternoon. The stretch home hit 50-60'ish in spots.

    I’m assuming it was kicked up by the front tire and impaled into your tire. I would like to see that happen in a slow motion video. There sure are a lot of hazards out there for us motorcycle riders.

    I think it might be time to pick up a couple spare tubes, spoons, hand pump, and maybe some of that Ride-On. Ideally I'd go tubeless and just carry a patch/plug kit, but I keep seeing mixed results for that. Anyone here gone tubeless with stock wheels/tires?

    SKINWALKER has done at least one tubeless rear stock wheel but with an ATV tire as have a few others. TRAILSCOUT put an 18" TUbliss on the front wheel I believe but downrated it.
