Day 3 of my VTX ownership I picked up a nail. Replaced that K555 rear tire with a D404 POS.
Dealer gave me a good price and I had to have it now.
Anyway, a few tires later I patched the OEM, it had a slight bubbling.
I had to fight that damn patch to get it off. It was on good.
I patched again, still some light bubbling, put a tube in it.

30,355 10/27/06 Original Dunlop K555 rear tire installed with a tube(good for 9,218 miles) to 39,323 miles
Many plies on the rear tire.
Is it a finishing nail?
