Something must be wrong with my 606's, I flatted a rear on the street and knew it the instant I leaned into a turn!

For the OP and others, you just need to have a mental checklist of things to do when you finish riding (or transition from dirt to street), just like you (hopefully) do before you start to ride. The implied task, for dual-sporters, is that you'll probably need to have a hand pump with you when you ride.

Or, a CO2 cartridge pump works great. It comes in a very small package.

Always check air, lights, oil, brakes and look for leaks every ride. I have saved myself a couple times.

It's always that one time we either forget or figure we can play the odds that seems to come around and bite us in the ass. Glad your injuries were relatively minor except to your pride, of course.
