Well it was a beautiful afternoon here in the Vancouver area. After a long day at work I decided to go for a spin. Was only out 1/2 hr when the day went to the dogs. A gremlin bit me and pushed a 3 inch piece of steel into my rear tire. So there i sat on the side for 1.5 hrs while my wife drove 20 miles to bring me the plug kit and a can of Punture Seal. Fixed up tire and went home. Now gotta get a new tire. Only had about 7400 km (4500 mi) on it. Expensive ride today.
