Screwed?

First off, ArmyJoe, hope you heal quick!

I have a damn noobie question. sigh....
Went for a ride today, stopped, not really sure why I looked but glad I did. Screw in my front tire. it's a 3/8" long screw and it was most of the way in. I know there's a tube. am I good? I appear to be holding air. it's kind of big hole....
I'm going to park it overnight and recheck pressure.

thanks for any advice!! one day I hope to actually meet some of you!

If you didn't puncture the tube your fine.

Nice ride today with Meef & his merry band of pranksters...chilly at first, but it warmed up and turned into a perfect riding day. Lots of new gravel roads I hadn't been on, which is always nice. Saw an entire field of identical striped cows, a squirrel get ran over by its tail, a dog wearing a knit hat, and the most shocking thing of all...I didn't order pie.

I peeled off after lunch to get some errands done around the house, but it was a good ride! I only snapped a few pics...

So is it impolite to ask what the route was? I am interested in getting my feet wet in ADV riding and that looked like my speed. I took theTenere out for an hour or so mid-afternoon but didn't venture as far north as you all did.

I would be happy to give you the tracks of today's ride, but like a dipshit I shut the track log off before I took off. Doh!

It wasn't a planned route, but a couple people were running GPS units maybe someone can cough 'em up.

We didn't have a set route and I don't think anybody recorded our tracks on gps. It's pretty easy to find good stuff east of Danville though.

z@ch,

I live in Gahanna too, 'bout 24 years now. I've known Solace for many years even if he won't admit it! Maybe by next riding season I will be ready to ride with you folks.

Ride around randomly and explore, that's the only way to find that stuff. I never run my tracking "on" (too easy for the man to subpoena your GPS unit and then your alibi comes crashing down).

When you're ready to drop your Tenere, then you're ready to go ride "gravel roads" with these folks.

What do you mean? Ej did fine on his blue one and Lisa has been fine on the black one. Is there a third color we need to know about?

You're ready when you're prepared to deal with this level of repair after riding with these guys.
