I have been riding short distances around the home-front everyday. Checking my tire pressure every couple of days I noticed I was loosing air. I first thought I hadn't tightened the solid valve stem tight enough, then I realized that was the other rear rim. Time for a good look see! Found two small nails in the center of the tread a couple of inches apart. So now they are plugged and all is well once again. Don't leak a bit, so I'll run it until time for a new one. Hopefully 8-10 thousand miles from now!:thumbup:

Hey Rocket, They are getting as bad as JP about picking on your Sunny. They just don't want to try a good tire. We know the Sunny is a good tire, I love mine, too.

I can't make them go away, only you can do that! I'll tell you how. Go buy a Sunny SN 3830 and mount it on your Wing. Then you will no longer be green with envy!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

2 nails in that Sunny tire you are running :eek:4::eek:4: I won't pick on you this time Rocket you are one very brave man. 1 nail I probably would of chucked that tire in the woods . But 2 nails and 2 plugs and you are still going to run it. May the force be with you because you are way more than a man than me. :thumbup:

Well been a lot of time in the hospital Rocket so don't get on to much. Miss throwing the bull with my friends but for right now this is what it is. Just think all the preaching going on around here about running a NRF its not going to kill me LMAO. Glad I don't live my life in fear it must be an awful feeling being afraid about everything thats going to or might happen to you. I don't think I have a great amount of time left but I will not live in fear and fight till the end, Talk to you soon my friend :thumbup::thumbup:
