Well after thousands of miles of riding it finally happened. Ran over an object today and punctured the rear tire on my 03 1800. I had a grand total of 500 miles on the bike! I have looked several times at the tire plug kits for just a situation but I have never purchased one. I had to trailer the bike home because I couldn't get the tire to hold air . I don't believe in plugging and running a tire for a long distance My HIDE is to special to me for this but it would have been nice to be able to plug air and ride home or to get replaced which ever comes first. Am looking for some experienced expertise on the subject as to which is the plug kit to use. Also the bike had Dunlop Radials and they did a great job of allowing me to get slowed down and off the road without dumping the bike! It was completely flat by the time I got it stopped and off the road. Bummed over the tire being ruined but glad me and the bike are in one piece. No complaning here!!!!
