Oh no Sid, not again!

The situation: You plan for weeks for a weekend of dirt biking. The bike is ready, your gear is ready, your ready. The list of things that need to be done is long. All the critical items are taken care of, but a few minor issues need to be resolved still.

The question: Off you go, Clear Creek or bust. You drive like the wind to arrive at your destination. Your goal is simple, to ride. As society and all it’s ills grow smaller and smaller in your rear view mirror, you know your weekend is going to be a good one for a change. You keep driving, faster and faster still. Knowing that the sooner you arrive the sooner the chains of the 9 to 5 grind will be forgotten. Then the problem rears it's ugly head. Less then a quarter mile from your weekend paradise, one of the tires on your trailer vaporizes. No problem, you think to yourself, I have a spare. Then the second tire goes. What do you do? Two blown tires, one spare. Call it Sid luck.



A) You disconnect the trailer and drive over 4 hours in the hope of buying new tires.
B) You hope that someone has a spare with the lug pattern that you can use.
C) Remove your bike and gear and abandon the trailer.
D) Your name is Sid and you worry about it later.
