I almost hate to ask. Can a motorcycle tire shred while riding?QUOTE]
Had it happen once. I was riding my 1966 Ducati 250 Monza on the freeway in Houston and my front tire came apart on me. It was a ribbed tire (remember those?) and it separated enough for the tube to poke though a bit and then it blew. Even though it was like pushing a loaded wheelbarrow though a muddy field I was able to get it off the freeway and even (slowly!) ride it back home. No damage except for a bit of a laundry problem for my mother.
I have 24hr road side assistance. I just call my insurance agent's office and if they are closed my call is routed to road side america and they send a trailer out to pick me up. thats what happen last time. I was fortune enough to have a Suzuki shop with in 50 mi. The first 50mi of towing is on the insurance card.I think I am charged per mile after that. If you do not fell safe where you are RSA will send somebody to be with you. They will stay on the phone for as long as you need them to.My question is more who do I call if its at night and I get a flat.
I have AMA roadside service. They too will stay on the line with you till help arrives if needed. As with any roadside service, do not expect a fast responce during the "Crash heavy" Rush Hour(s) as all law enforcement calls take priority.My question is more who do I call if its at night and I get a flat.
