The first flat of the season always arrives when it's raining. That's just the way of things. However, if you're riding with Frank Lundeen, you'll be back on the road again in 2:38. Actually, he could probably even change a tire a little faster, but he was kind of lollygagging around with this one (plus I was there to heckle him which never helps your concentration).
Look out for the Allan Lindsley reference (he was going to come with us and then he cancelled...thus the never ending abuse...it's all done out of love though :).
