    I have contained me excitement For long enough. I recently brought @kiffsta 's Dailey rider the hanspree mc22. And she has just passed blue slip. Sadly! Tho I managed to or the guy doing the testing managed to get a nice screw stuck in the wheel.
    Pictures will be up when I get home. So back to the bike shop and get a repair. $85 dollars later. Geez they sting you.

    Huge.

    Just in case someone is not aware: Swan Insurance offers a Tyre & Rim insurance. Last time, I paid $430 for 3 years of insurance. It covers unlimited puncture repairs, up to 2 new tyres a year, up to 1 new rim a year. And it includes the tow truck.

    I was commuting for several years, and got a puncture at least once a year. If you have a puncture like this one, you can still fix it. But if the damage is near the side of the tyre, or you already have a repair near the puncture, you can't fix it any more. Your only option is (at least it should be) a new tyre.

    This is the beauty of the insurance. Last time I needed help, got towed, new rear tyre ($440) mounted and balanced. Didn't pay a cent. The bill was for $490, more than what I paid when I took the insurance.

    On a 250cc, the tyres are much cheaper. But you're covered for 3 years. Including damage to the rims. There are caps though, $500 per tyre and $1000 per rim.

    Worth checking it out.

    Congrates on your new toy! That insurance sounds a good deal.
    My question is ,can you remove the screw/nail and put in one of those puncture repair sticky wick thing just to get home od tyre shop or are they to dangerous for a bike? sorry for jumping topic...Ken

    I have seen them used before.. I think it all comes down to the size of the hole....

    Punturces are common place out here when you go offroad. I've had good success with those wicks on a quad. You can use two together on a bigger hole. I reckon they'd be enough to get you home.
