With such fine weather and a distinct lack of traffic most everywhere, now is a perfect time to get on the road with your metallic pride and joy and enjoy the crisp spring breeze and spacious streets.
These are the makings of a memorable trek, so the last thing anyone wants to experience on a nice, long 200-or-so-mile trip across new towns and isolated backroads is a flat tire. Whether by a loose screw or broken glass, your two-wheeled machine faces a litany of things that can—and will—deflate your fun, replacing it with headache-inducing stress. Any rider who does not take the necessary precautions is destined to go through this situation. Yes, it is almost inevitable that at some point an errant sharp object will come into contact with your bike’s wheels, so a bit of preparedness goes a long way to resuming the adventure.
Bring along a tire repair kit for those long rides through the country. Tire repair kits are portable and reasonably priced, so all the more reason to carry one. The included tools may not be enough to offer a permanent fix, but a temporary solution buys enough time to go to a trusted dealer or repair shop.
