    Lovely day here today:)

    Took the bike into town it was telling me it was 23 c :).
    I had a couple of things to do and it didn't involve picking up anything big, so on with the leather:D. Lets give it some beans:D

    Got to town and round a couple of roundabouts no issues, next roundabout, opps that feels funny on the turn in not very nice feeling going round and double opps coming off said roundabout, my bottom was not liking it so pulled over. yep flat back tyre :mad::mad:. Checked the tyre and no signs of nails etc etc, but it was rather hot on my tender skin:D

    Managed to get me hands on a tin of air with sticky shaving foam in it;) got that in and the tyre back up no white stuff coming out anywhere:confused:. So as what I had to do wasn't urgent turned right around and headed home slowly:). Got home safe and tyre still up but it wasn't a nice 65km ride home with no confidence in the tyre. So it will be wheel off and next trip in will take and get a new tyre as I don't trust it now. just got to find somebody who can change it without butchering the rim:eek:.

    Apart from the little BP raising event its been a good day:) and tomorrow is MOT day for the cars:) that should be fun too.

    Hope everybody has had a good day:).

    @marjon that foam in tyres is fun in motocross/enduro. It gets hot & expands like expanding foam then your tyre falls off, followed closely by the rider. yes I may have not read the part where it says don’t exceed a certain speed.

    I hate back flats

    Me Island has been warned about possible flooding later so think I'll take the Landy to work in case it gets a bit splashy.
