Another kudo for TPMS
« on: August 04, 2014, 09:08:51 pm »
So Saturday, I start down the street, and run over over what I thought was a small rock, judging by the sound of the clunk, and it sounded as if it involved the front tire.  So I stop, and looked over the tire, and not seeing any chunks or stab wounds in it, I continued on my way.  (No, I didn't look at the rear...doh :-[) About 2 miles later, the red warning light came on saying low tire pressure in the rear.  What had been 40lbs, was now 27lbs and dropping. So I slowly made my way back home, and by the time I pulled into the garage, the indicated pressure was 16lbs.  Picked up a screw in the street...#$(*%!!!.  But  yea for TPMS.  If it hadn't been for that, I would have been stranded with a flat rear.
  So I then looked again at the front, and noticed the wear bars are pretty well engaged w/ the pavement.  Time to utilize that new Pirelli Angel I won a few months ago.  I then ordered an Angel for the rear, which should be here Friday...the day we are leaving for Glacier.  C'mon, UPS, don't let me down!
  Even though the rear still has a lot of meat on it, I don't feel comfy riding 3000 miles on a patched tire, that already has 5000 miles on it. (Dunop Roadsmarts)
  Anyway, another testament to TPMS.

Agreed- TPMS is just another wonderful facet of that all- knowing, all- protecting piece of wonderfulness known as KiPass....

At least I think that is what Marty is thinking....

KiPass keeping you up at night? Has the low fuel warning burned your retinas? Find peace, harmony and the answer to these problems.
