As I was the third rider trailing along at the rear on my small Yamaha XT250cc I had of course noticed that 'back wheel' on the big beemer was NOT tracking along as it should also. The wheel was by now starting to take on an 'odd shaped appearance', (and as pillion Jess is NOT a majorly 'overweight bundle' on the back, investigation was indeed necessary). Tim having noticed the poor handling quality by now of the big bike (I mean we had travelled at least 50kms from Taupo??) it was definately time to pull over and dial '0F800 Tyre Roadside Repair Service', compliments of Jim Denham, so lucky to have Jim along at moments like these.
Jim seen here checking out that offender. What we discovered was an amazing stud sized nail had been collected and had made a good size hole. So good to travel so well prepared with all of the tools necessary to fix and repair punctures, along with pretty much anything else that happens along also.
