Motorcycle Trip: Day 7, flat tire
I now have first-hand experience of what happens when a motorcycle gets a front flat tire: It's almost impossible to turn the bike by balance, and in my case it wanted to pull to the right (like a misaligned car when you take your hand off the wheel).

The import motorcycle shops up the road are closed on Sunday. The Harley-Davidson shop is helping me get it towed at least to them. They may have a tire that is close to the right size so we'll see once the bike is back at the shop. Otherwise I'll be spending the night here and getting a new tire tomorrow.

No mention of cost has been mentioned yet. I know that's not a good way to get started, but... *crosses fingers*

We'll see soon. This is putting me behind schedule a bit, but at least I'm still alive at this point. I'll accept that compromise.

At least you are ok.

Absolutely. I'd accept a totalled bike and complete loss of worldly goods as long as I'm still alive and well. It won't be the cause of the end of the world so there's still hope.

Also glad you're ok. Hope this doesn't hurt your plans or your wallet too badly.

The plans adjusted okay, although we've been even nicer if they didn't need to be. The wallet is moaning, but, for the moment, not dead. Yet. The latter is the one that most concerns me now. I'm working on that, though.

Good luck on the moneyhunt! Your plan is to stay with Kyle for a while and do some work?
