Looks like a nail rather than a thorn. Did you find it on a ride today?  ;)

Visitations like that are something of a relief, because at least you're sure what caused the deflation and that you've got rid of it.

Once, whilst on my Honda 650, I was following a much larger bike (1000 / 1200cc) which had a six inch nail entered through the tread, and exited through the sidewall of the rear tyre.
I wasn't able to match their speed to let them know.

>20 years ago I suffered a perfectly banal visitation, a tiny perforation through a worn tyre.  The cause was noteworthy, though: I had just ridden through a dropping from a buzzard or such and had picked up a tiny shard of bone.
I've dusted off all those old bottles and set them up straight

Indeed it is, and yes I did. But regrettably useless. (kept as a souvenir tho)

My guess it was the rear wheel.
