Blew a tire

I was riding up to Cycle Gear off 45S and about 2 exits from where i was gonna get off my back tire starts to feel loose and alil funny so I decide to get off the freeway and stop at the stoplight and guess what instead of standing on my toes i am standing flat footed thank goodness I made it over to the store and instead of getting some new riding pants I get a new back tire...the part that really sucks is they are allowed to put the tire on the bike but they are not able to take the old tire off so i also get to buy a patch kit...wrap the old tire around my waist and off i go to a bike shop to get the tire put on...I do have to say the guys at 2 WHEEL TOYS off college are top notch got the tire replaced real quick good service and a pretty good shop inside for clothes and stuff like that I will defiently be going back to get a carb tune up...real stand up guys over there

I noticed that 2 wheel toys the other day and hadn't seen much fanfare about it. I also noticed that there is a Mancuso's going up off of 45 as well north of Edgebrook on the southbound side. The SE which was once deprived of shops is exploding.

It was a white guy I believe his name was Chris changed the tire pretty quickly much faster than I could have for sure. Rudy was there and said he would hook me up when I decide to get my carbs cleaned out. Bad gas is clogging up one of the carbs and Rudy said its running on 3 cyclinders right now.
