I left home on Thursday (9/4/14) about 11:00 am, got through Flint on I 475 and as I approached the Bridgeport exit, I got the wildest ride in years. 75 mph and my rear tire is flat. I called Poor Boy Chopper and they sent a truck & trailer. Found the valve stem to be the problem. Well my tire ( new 9000 miles ago) is junk from being rolled flat. I was able to get my truck and make my trip, almost as planed. The shop will have a new tire on Monday. Be careful out there

One of the big reasons I run Darkside on my Wing. The rear is also a run-flat.
