Got a flat last night

Was taking the beltway feeder from HWY 3 to 45 and through the double turn twisty section from beltway feeder to 45 north felt my rear end feel kinda weird, lots of traction but kinda wobbly. I continued to go and felt a wobble on the straight.
Pulled over and have big screw in my tire. Got towed home, need new tire.
People, if your bike starts feeling funny, pull that over and check it out.

i love that turn lol. you got the right sweeper when you do the 1st turn. then u-turn and you got the left sweeper.

back on topic. its a good thing nothing happened in the middle of the turn!

That turn is pretty sweet, especially after coming back in on 3 from clearlake because 45 sucks.

I once rode my bike home from 45S and 610 all the way to Sugar Land on a flat. I was surprised how I was able to still go about 70mph on the straight. Turning was the tricky thing. haha... I dont think I'll ever do that again though.
