A Nail Cost $500 in S.Dakota

I woke up this morning and made a fresh cup of coffee. That's been the
highlight of my day so far.
Right when I got on the bike I noticed that it wasn't handling right.
Even though I was only riding 5 mph through the park I could tell
something was wrong.
My rear tire only had 5psi in it. So I went to a car shop a mile away
and filled her up. That got me to Sioux Falls.
From there I searched 'motorcycle repair' on Google Maps and started
calling places. Apparently NOBODY will patch a tire due to liability
reasons.
So here I am at a bike shop trading $500 for two new tires.
I had planned to replace both in Seattle in 4 days but I had not
planned on spending $500.
:(
