Flat tire

I drove out to Chigasaki, which is about 50 Km from Tokyo, yesterday with one of my fighters Maruyama. I have a friend out there who owns a big sports school, and they were talking about hiring a personal kickboxing trainer. So Maruyama being the perfect candidate stepped up for the position and we drove out there and negotiated the deal.On the way out there we took the local streets to see how long it would take and on the way back we went high way. It took about 1 hour to get there on the normal streets and it would have taken me about 35min. on the high way, had it not been for a suddenly inflation of my back tire! I was doing around 85km/hour when I felt that back of my back starting to slip away from me. I slowed down a bit and then tried bouncing up and down a bit, because I was not quite sure what had happened. But when Maruyama caught up to me we knew for sure. I was still about 20km away from my house, and this might sounds kind of stupid but I seriously needed to get back and switch bikes. Because I needed to drive back and forth between two gym's in order to teach. So I took it slowly kind of wobbly but I actually made it all the way home on my flat tire. I don't think I would like to try that again, but at least I made it back and everything looks fine. Except, I have not had a bike experts opinion yet...

昨日は丸山選手と茅ヶ崎まで行きました。バイクで下道で一時間かかりました、意外と思ったよりも早いです。茅ヶ崎にある林スポーツジムで彼は10月からキックのクラスとパーソナルをやるかやらないかとの話し合いでした。昼過ぎに東京に帰ったときでした、85kmぐらいを出している自分はいきなり後ろのタイヤがすべり出した!何となく空気が抜けたような感じでしたけど、自転車じゃないのでよく分からなくって。それでも平気で60kmを出して、高速から降りた。車みたいにパンクしてもそれなりに走れるから、そのまま家まで行ってハーレーに乗り換えた。帰りは高速に乗った理由は時間的にどれぐらい違うんだと知りたかったけど、パンクしたせいで全然分からないです。パンクしたバイクは真直ぐ走れるけど左や右に曲がりたいと本当に危ないです、よく家まで行けたな~
