Yeah
on the rear tire.
I was doing around 60 or so coming off of the south loop on to 225. The rear felt a little loose so I backed off a little. Things started getting worse so I added a little throttle. That helped some but not much (i guess it was the centrifugal force of the spinning tire). Once I got to a straight section of the road I started slowing it down It was not to bad until i I got below 40 or so. The tire was flopping around all over the rear rim.

and Yes there were suction marks on the seat by the time I got stopped.

The bike did not go down but I would prefer if it never happened again.

Just one more reason for ATGATT

There were a few more the that one was the worst.

Rear totally deflated as I was pulling up to the house. Must have run over a nail that flew out of the tire.

I've had it happen twice
once low speed pulling into a driveway, it was like impossible to get it up the driveway.
second didn't run completely flat but as I left school went down the road like a mile turned into my brothers old apartment complex and almost lost it because the tired flopped over.

Only minutes earlier I was doing 80 on the 288 to 610 East ramp. Just wondering what would have happened had the tire deflated then.

Rear tire. Heading down 59S past the Kirby area. Got big time squirly swaying left and right. Just slowed down and pulled over. That was back in 92-93 and it has not happened again. I was a squid back then and did not pay attention to the condition of my shyte....

I dread that ever happening on the front tire. :shudder:

i picked up a screw coming in to work one day and lost all the air from my rear tire. it felt like i was riding through mud. it was a slow deflation, i guess, because i didnt realize my tire was flat until i was parked

never had a flat tire.... but one time i warmed my bike up took it through my neighborhood without stopping pulled up to the light at westheimer where my neighborhood exit is. Went to brake and basically got nothing. The front fork seals leaked horribly and got the brake rotors and pads all oily. Almost rode right into traffic

Valve stem was leaking, when you reinflated it reseated and sealed properly. Could have been a slow leak from the last time you inflated and some dirt got in there.

Some friends and I were riding north out of Brookshire on FM 362, which some may know has a couple of long stretches of straight leading to fairly sharp (in some cases 90deg) turns. It was very windy, so even though we were riding hard, you could feel the wind buffeting you around.
When we reached the first set of turns (right/left, then straight again) my bike felt funny. Kinda wobbly but I figured it was the wind. We banzaied down the straight above 140mph until we reached the next right/left combination. Entering that turn at about 110 (decelerating of course) I could tell that something was very wrong as my bike was sashaying increasingly hard.
I completed that turn and the wobbling continued, even though I was on a short straight. By the time I reached the entry to the left turn I was barely in control (still slowing).
As I pulled off the pavement I was going slow enough to hear the psss psss psss of the air coming out of my tire as it rolled. I managed to get the bike stopped, just as the last of the air leaked out of my rear tire.
10 seconds before I was going 140mph+ and now my tire was completely flat.


Got really lucky that day, it could easily have gone much worse.

I now keep an extra front rim in the garage because as you can see i like to hit stuff. this saves a lot of time ebay shopping and possibly paying too much for something when i need it NOW
