this is my 5 th time tring to add post ithout my phone doing something stupid (droid does not like MH SITE for some reason)

People stopped, but wanted me to leave bike, or follow me.

I wasn't going to leave the bike, and what logisticslly would following have done? If the tire did it thing in a minor way..what could they do? If it blew..and accident happened, others would have stopped regardless.

Shout out to PIG (PINCHE' INDEPENDANCE GROUP). One of the members stopped. And offered ride. NONE of actual motorcyclists on bikes stopped. Go figure :/

I average about 1000 miles a week now since I found work, and travel on a good portion of dirt road off 362 (nothing dirt about it..solid JAGGED ROCKS) I can see how the tire unraveled so quickly once it got below tread.

But I'm good now. Cycle gear near my house had only one rear tire that fit, and cut me a deal because im in there frequently, and the tire has sat for months. If only I wasn't called in to cover for a cowrker yesterday :/ lol

I hope it posts this time. Sorry if there are 5 previous posts like it... phone keeps changing pages on me if I tap the screen to correct spelling, daaah.

As other posters stated, I feel no remorse for those that know better, but ultimately continue on the way to darwinism. That's why I stopped. Riding on cord is the LAST layer of a tire (and not ridable) in my mind.


Seriously, if I were to look at it from someone elses perpective, and I continued, and wrecked or bitched about...I wouldn't feel sorry. You continue pushing the edge, and you will get hurt.

So to those that spoke openly, I agree 100 percent. Reap what you sew. I wasn't going to push luck any further. I did enough. Pruidence said "walk..stay off the bike". Darwin gets to find someone else ( and death too). Both got the finger yesterday
...lol fug em both.

Shoot, I rode mine back to San Antonio, from the other side of Leakey, with cords hanging out (over two hours on the road).

Next day still had 35 psi in it, but you could actually SEE the air... LOL!!!!! :0

This entire thread is ridiculous. You don't know anyone that owns a truck? Why can't you leave the bike again?

leave bike = chancing losing bike

ride bike = chancing wrecking

bike is his only means of transportation.

if he lose the bike he can't get to work.

he needs work.

he needs not to wreck to see his child

Conclusion: can't leave bike.

I guess some people like to work harder, not smarter. Darwinism is pushing a bike for 15 miles when you could have ridden it SLOWLY home. How much additional stress is on the tire when your pushing at 3 miles an hour versus riding home at 5 miles an hour with an additional 150 pounds on the bike. I would guess not enough to matter. There’s probably a greater risk of having a heart attack, slipping and falling or getting hit pushing the bike for 15 miles than riding it..

Im going to have to agree with this gentleman...you could have rode the bike 20mph or so. While yes generally speaking its unsafe to ride on cords, the tires on motorcycles are thick as fk.

heck, I rode mine one time all the way down Honea Egypt with a flat front... talk about not turning worth a !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And even if it had gone flat while riding, it isn't like it would explode and flip you off at low speeds... it is a gradual feeling of "why is this thing handling so squirrely?" feeling...

Everybody on here can say that they have ridden on a tire in worse condition all day long, but in the end it's all about personal preference...Some people prefer to be safe than sorry, so you can't really hound a guy or think less of someone because they didn't wanna risk getting hurt or messing up their only mode of transportation...

Now, with that being said, I have a bad bottom end knock in my Navigator that pretty much developed on the road on my way home, I know all the things that could go wrong by continuing to drive it, but I did it anyway cuz I had no other way to get it home, and I didn't have the money for a tow, and my truck made it home just fine, now I've just gotta worry about getting it rebuilt...

Also, yes, I would have just hopped on the bike and rode it at about 10 miles an hour to the house because I really don't see too much of a difference between pushing it and riding it at that speed, but that's just me...

you guys dont get it.

I WAAAAAAAANNNNTTTTEEEEEEEEED to push the bike home. I made myself do it. cause I havent had any time to myself (without a valid excuse) as of late. between a grand miles of commuting, divorce lawyers, and fees, and courts, child support payments eating me up, the gas, and parts replacement for commuting. i needed a break. if i didnt have this excuse, then i would have been busy busy busy cause i had to be.


lol you all keep giving reasons. i dont give a . after a while i saw an opportunity when stuck. i then WANTED to push it. geez could it not be any more clear.

LOL to each their own...

Couple things to be learned from this thread...

keep your phone charged... never know when you might need it
print off the roadside assistance list from MH and keep in your wallet.. if nothing else you can borrow some change and start calling..
