I like how you blame the low air pressure on someone else. . .how childish. You didn't even notice you had a tire that was completely flat, proceeded to drive 20 miles and reach speeds of 70MPH and you want to point your finger at someone else? I seriously doubt someone let the air out of your tire. Take a little more responsibility for your bike, your life, and the people around you next time and get in the habit of checking your bike out before throwing a leg over it. Thanks for providing some entertainment today. . .I can't believe some of the I read around here on a daily basis.

anyways....

first the wheel needs to be spun to see if its even fixable... if its bent on the axis then its not worth fixing most of the time....
call the shop and come by and we can spin it for you and if its fixable we can send it to get fixed. or if not then we can help find a rim. what i would advise is either get a oil change (which covers a good checkout) or just pay for a full checkout and we will go threw the bike and let you know everything and anything it needs and the condition of everything.

I admit, the first thing I did when I got my first bike was hit the ton, but that was stupid as .
when I first got my bike... I was doing 45 mph and felt like I was doing 80 on that !

Now.. I'll be doing 80 and it feels like I'm doing 45mph..

Hehe back in my day (a few months ago on a 250) we had to have a tailwind and a steep hill to even see what the ton looked like. kids

Can't understand that people don't know when their tire pressure is low. I can tell like a 5 psi difference in my front as soon as I get on the bike.
Crazy that someone could ride something so hard to steer and not wonder why it's like that.
Must have felt different from when he first rode it.
Just weird to me.

So that's what 20 miles of riding on a flat does to your brand new tire. Oh only if I found out what hater did this or caught him doing it...
His face have very very bad day!

Exactly what is an unsafe low pressure? I keep mine between 34 and 36 but I was watching the Isle of Man races and I swear I heard them say they were running about 19psi!! Does that sound normal?
