AMA Roadside Assistance just saved me. Gave them a call and they immediately dispatched a tow truck to pick up my bike after I received 13 punctures in my rear tire.

I have an air compressor and tire plugs...but not that many!



Now to look for a new set of tires...

Now why did you have to run over that poor porcupine?

13 punctures!? :furious:

What in the heck were you doing or should I ask where in the heck were you riding?

13 punctures-that may be some kind of record you know?

Location: I5 Northbound, between Mountlake Terrace and the exit for I405 / 525.

I was cruising in the HOV lane before merging over to take the exit for I405 / 525, around the Lynnwood Transit Center.

Just ordered new tires.

Glass in the road?

Punctures in both the front and the back tire?

Oddly enough it missed the front tire. The front seems to be holding air okay, but I didn't check it this morning.

There were around 8 punctures on the left side of the rear, 2 in the middle, and 3 towards the right. I would have expected glass to still be embedded in the tire, but there was nothing. Just holes and cuts.
