Bummer on the way back home

So I took advantage that most bikers will be at the rally this weekend and went to the hill country. That place is awesome! Very nice scenery and badass roads! The trip would have been perfect if it werent for a screw that took out my rear tire. I had the bike towed to Love's to get the tire plugged. Oh well better than hitting a deer I guess.

Yes, this was earlier today. It was pretty cold in Kerrville this morning. I think the temps dropped down to 36F. My bike struggled to start in the morning lol

Love's is a truck stop that carries a buncha stuff. I just picked up a tire plug kit and plugged the hole. Surprisingly the plug held up for the rest of the 230 miles back home!

Bummer for sure man, did the hill country on 3 different bikes and had more fun on my 09 Raider than on my sport bikes. That Strat is perfect for that trip!
