Blow out, ugh!

Damn! 12 miles from Aberdeen and boom! Blow out. At least I didnít go down! 5 1/2 hours later I finally made it home. Still had fun waving at all the bikes passing.

Anyone good at mounting tires?

Shit man, that blows...pun maybe intended.

Glad you made it home safe.

And yeah, I know a guy for tires...but I'll see if anybody drops his name first.

BTW, how did you get home?

Oh, ok. I had a vision of you rolling down the shoulder on a flat.

As Ed said, hit me up, I do tires. $25 per wheel, mounted and balanced, if you bring me the wheel which as long as you have a centerstand on your bike is silly easy.

Yes, I have a single sided swinger wheel balancer.

Look at www.jakewilson.com for tires if you're gonna order it yourself. Usually no tax or shipping and consistently the best prices I've found online.

I was lucky. We were only rolling along about 80mph and it was the rear. Just about 12miles back I cracked it open to 160mph! So glad it didnít go then!

You def hit something.

Do you see how it was cut or is that just the pic?

Damn. I just bought a replacement for my Angel GT debacle and will be needing it mounted like toward the end of this week when it arrives....

Fuuuuuckk

BTW -

I checked the linked website for tire prices. The tire I paid $194.99 with free shipping from RevZilla they list for $189.99.
