    Yesterday I did some great riding on the gravel Citico Road in SE Tennessee. Got to a place I could see US 129 just across the Chilhowee Dam, but the GPS said it was 35 road miles to get there! So I did and rode the Tail of the Dragon to get my picture taken 5 times. Then rode the Cherohala Skyway in the rain. Had it all to myself! The fog hanging in the valleys was pretty. Love the smell of the forest in the rain.

    Rode it to work this morning. As I walked to the door, a duck went storming out of the bushes, flapping and squaking and flew away. Scared the crap out of me. Turns out she made a nest right there in the bush by the entrance. Hope those eggs hatch quick. I feel bad that she is disturbed every time someone comes or goes.

    A while back I had a pretty good sized puncture in my very low miles PR4 rear, was able to shove about 4 plugs in, inflate it and made it the 50 miles home. Shortly after that my 2018 Goldwing came in so the NC got to sit in the garage for a few weeks, finally got around to checking the tire ... and it was down to 20 lbs.
    Got some Ride On and installed it, aired up and went for a 20 mile ride to get it spread around the tire. Checked it today, 20 lbs again. For whatever reason the angle of the hole or something isn't allowing it to be sealed. Going to have to crack open the wallet and get a new mate for the just as low miles front PR4. Oh well, what you gonna do?

    Grey1one, how far from the centerline was the puncture? What I found was that with the prescribed amount or RideOn installed, it only covers maybe a 2.5 inch wide strip of goo inside the tire. The rest of the inside of the tire is bone dry.

    It's only about an inch off of the centerline, but I'm not going to try anything else. I did a bunch of weaving and leaning side to side trying to get good coverage on the ride after installing it. Tires are too important a safety item for me.
    Luckily I am in a position where I can replace it without breaking the bank.
    Though it looks like I may be going with an R5, the PR4s are even more expensive for some reason.
