Reposting from a friend of mine...

Today I was riding the Fat Girl to Roe City Riders clubhouse to see some Custom Bikes and at a speed of 70 on the interstate right before my exit I felt the back of the bike kinda shutter a little, nothing bad just NOT normal! When I parked I happened to look at the back tire and noticed it was looking low as I had just checked both tire pressures and both were good! I looked at my Tire monitor and was getting a warning of losing air! I found this nail completely through the sidewall! SO, got back on the bike and ride home 15 miles at speed! (This is the very reason I choose to ride on RUN FLAT tires!) if it had been a regular tire I would be dead in the water waiting on a trailer to pick it up!

I had a nail like that 3" nail through my trailer's tire 500+ miles from home.... (Glad I had a spare tire w/me to replace it) kind'a scary isn't it??

Smart move to go RF, could not agree more, been there done that, so done with OEM , cannot believe the whole industry is not mandated to go to RF, heck we have mandated everything else, oh wait, never mind, glad you made it.
