Today I had a really nasty experience.
After a 40 mile ride over the highway I registrated a very weak driving behavior of my SCR 950. I stopped and noticed a puncture at my rear wheel.
A small screw had punctured my tire. :frown2:
Time of day: 06:00 a.m.
After inflating the tire at a gas station I was able to "roll" to a tire retailer who opened at 08:00 a.m.
Blessing in disguise for me I´m still riding on the original stock tires from Bridgestone. Those tires are used with tubes. Therefore only the tube had to be changed. But this is still an big work effort. Nearly 45 minutes of work for the changing and the new balancing of the tire.
I attached some pictures of the tube changing.

I think you’ll always be riding on tubed tires on the SCR mate, unless you change the wheels, or seal the spokes! :wink2:

It is a ball ache getting a puncture though - I was about 60 miles from home, in the back of beyond (OK......Hull), so had to get trailered home.

Be nice to get some Kineo spoked wheels, so I can use tubeless tires....maybe one day, looking at the price!!!
