I dunno what's worse: getting one on the road or walking out to the bike in the morning and discovering a flat has ruined your planned ride:

The one on the road, of course.
Pfff, that was easy. Nothing beats the comfies of home.

On the other hand, nothing beats the surprises on the road, hmm...

geez, I don't like you. Your questions are way too difficult, sir.

Not quite yet remote. Not nearly as impressive as some of the other stories on here.
After a few failed attempts to patch it, I put a front tube in and rode back to the dealership a few miles back. Oh the looks I got once I told them I put a front tube in the back tire.

Actually your question got me thinking. I came to realize never having had a bad flat: a few in the rain, yes, but not cold, so even those were ok.
Now a flat while being cold and wet that would be inconvenient.

Not familiar with the Concours. What makes the TPS stand out in relation to others?

It has given me early warning of a puncture. It was a slowish leak and I didn't have a repair kit with me (always do now) so I was able to ride from gas station (I was after their compressor not the gas) to gas station keeping an eye on the tyre pressure until I got back to civilisation and a bike shop to fix the tyre.

Wicked.
So you got lucky having access to compressors on the escape route. In a similar situation I had to rely on the bicycle pump strapped to the frame. Took me 30-40 mins of pumping for every 6 km. Still beated pushing the loaded bike, but I didn't made it home before dark.

Touratech front axle stand.



Sweaty Mr Markie - it was in the desert east of Zaragoza in Spain and HOT



Luckily there was an irrigation channel 10 meters away so I could wash up / cool down afterwards, although I think my mate was hoping for a "Markie plunges into the water" shot....



cheers

Markie

The plug I put in this stuffed tyre got me 500km to home. Tyre did not look quite as bad when I got the puncture. Hot weather and rough roads really did the tyre in.
