more expensive trip than expected

So, I jumped on the GPZ and headed up to Dave Beard's for a couple days. It was a real nice ride...nice and sunny...pleasant ride. Took about 6 hours or so. My chain was adjusted out as far as the tire would allow, and it is a 147 link chain, so Dave said he had a riveted master link I could have and we could break out a couple links in the chain. I said Cool! Last night I took a little spin down to the gas station for some Carmex, but when I came out of the station, I noticed the cords showing through on my back tire. So, $150 for a Conti Force rear tire plus $35 mounting and balancing, $4 old tire disposal and $10 for a T-shirt, I'm out just over $200. But at least I'll feel more confident on the way home. Geez!
