I was cruisin at about 70-80 my speedo is off due to new sprockets. Anyways so all of a sudden I hear this pop and the bike starts to wobble and jerk around. I slow down pretty quick to figure out what it was and low and behold I find this in my back tire. I've been riding for a little over a year now and this is the first time this has happend. I feel lucky even though im out ~$200 it could have been worse. What are yalls thoughts on plugs? I used a standard plug on the outside long enough to last until early next week until I can buy a new one.

Ya, I was kinda shocked when I pulled it out. The tire was pretty bald anyways so at least this wasnt on a new one. Bad part is I have to drive 25 miles on the plug to get a new one put on.

Plug should hold as long as you ride her gently. *I am not saying that it will, just that it should. Mine has for a few weeks now*

one was a nail and the other was a combo rear end/screw...i say combo cause the screw started it and the impact put it to rest. it sucks.
