Glad you didn't dump it. I had the same thing happen to me on the way to a HD dealer of all places. Took 6 Dyna plugs to seal it and I got it home OK. Sure is amazing that the puncture as it was on mine was in the sipe where there's next to no rubber. Had it been in the tread you'd probably sealed it up just fine.
Wow, at least you are ok and hope there was no damage. I have to say you have more plugs in that tyre than we have in our government lol . The main thing is you are ok and managed to get home to have a new tyre done asap. Good luck and stay safe.
My Son uses Shinko tires on his Victory and they seem to work out very good for him. Just wondering if anyone has used them on the 1600, which one? and what kind of mileage they got....Thanks for your time and sharing your info...........Steve, Antioch, Ca.
Just ask yourself one question. Is my life worth saving a couple hundred bucks on tires. Why only just a couple hundred??? I'd pay thousands and thousands for a single tire if it would save my life. Whatever you buy is what you get; your life's worth has nothing to do with what you spend or...
Yes, I walked back down the road and saw that someone had run a wood chipper early in the week and there were just a couple shards on the road. Anyway, home safe and sound! The Shinko Verge 2X were impressive! I never get more than 4000 miles out of a tire anyway, so what the heck. Dilly – dilly!!
