This is a placeholder post while I gather some of my images.

This is a screw from my trip home. Poked a nice hole into my rear Dualtron wheel. I had to Uber home. I installed 8 Oz of Slime into the tire and then filled it with air. Not sure if it will work 100% and didn't trust it to take to work this morning.

On my way home last night before I got screwed, I tried to obtain a picture of one of my crash locations. They have fixed the street since then so the cause is no longer there.

Well so far so good after my accident today. 

I have been at A&E since 19.00, now it is almost 02.30. Apparently I didn't go to Valhalla, but the starting to ache like mad now.

Now with picture of the rock I hit after my puncture. 

Lesson learned:

I need to get a MC jacket and possible MC pants too. I am not going to slime the wheel, I might get back to this later why.

The above image is a screw from yesterday's trip home. I had to Uber home. I installed 8 Oz of Slime into the tire and then filled it with air. Not sure if it will work 100% and didn't trust it to take to work this morning. 

 

Personally I wouldn't trust anything other than a new tube.  I tried a repaired tube and the patch failed suddenly.  The wheel became instantly uncontrollable, very scary, not a good feeling.  I was going about 20km/h I would estimate and I managed to jump off and keep upright, but any faster and I would've been on the ground for sure.
