I have had A LOT of incidents where a nail has literally shredded my rear tyre's tube. Now, whenever i suspect that rear tyre is puncture (or going to be flat), i immediately stop the bike, for an inspection of rear tyre, and don't proceed without finding the culprit nail. This has proven to be very useful because otherwise, the risk of the tube completely getting effed increased by nearly 100%.
I would say that YBR Owners should aim for Tubeless tyres. It will definitely cost a lot buying better tyres from say, Dunlop ... but it will also have the added benefits. (Well, the cost of maintenance is definitely going to rise too, because tubeless tyre's puncture isn't really cheap(er than the tube wala tyre); plus i am not so sure if a road side puncture wala can fix it without proper tools.
