I've suffered from two punctures in the space of four weeks both on the rear tyre. Neither me nor the tyre fitter could find the cause of the first one (I only noticed it about three miles after hitting the motorway) but the second one was a poxy little nail.
This has led me to believe that either A) I have been the subject of a curse by anthromorphic Ogri nails and shrapnel or I am doing something wrong.
As someone with enough common sense to realise that curses are the preserve of banshees and mad men I have favoured the later. I can only assume that I picked up both these punctures while filtering through stationary traffic, which often means riding near and on the centre of the road (have I just answered my own question with that statement or am I just unlucky?)
The strange thing is the guys that fitted my tyre said that it was the sixth puncture in five days (all on motorcycles) which leads me to believe that either inanimate objects are coming to life and declaring war on motorcyclists or the local authorities are doing a piss-poor job of cleaning the roads?
Has anyone else been plagued by punctures recently or can anyone point tell me if I should try and be more patient in stationary traffic?
