    Blown Tire

    I was riding home today on hwy no.1 and I pulled up next to a dulley pick up truck and one of the freaking tires blew up and smoked me in the side, i was going about 130 when it hit me and man that is not a pleasant experience, almost knocked me over.

    DAMN, yer lucky it didn't wipe you right of the bike. It must have been a very gentle love tap.

    I was following a flat deck in my truck one time when the whole tire tread peeled up and off like an orange peel. It made 2 bangs. The first only medium loud as the tire blew and the second was FRIGGIN" EXPLOSIVE as the belt wound itself up and over and SLAPPED the flat deck. I was about 100 yards back at the time.

    You only got 8 lives left.... use them well...
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
