My Insurance lets me plug my tires.... (my self insurance...LOL)

I said this before N I'll say it again... I've plugged about 6 motorcycle tires that I had before, as of today never had a problem (knock on wood) I will never plug a front tire to keep riding on it but the rear tire.. I will plug it before I ever think of getting a nother new tire.. (thats just me!)

Took it to Motorcycles Unlimited, Patrick said his insurance doesnt allow him to repair tires, But i was wondering if there is a cheap way around then buying the whole new tire and having it installed all over again. or is there any place to get them repaired? i mean its a puncture. why not just fix it? its literelly a BRAND NEW TIRE !!!!!!
where the did you paid so much to have it installed?>?????

I used to think you were retarded for this, but I plugged a tire on the er6, put another 2k miles on it, never had a problem either...

I have 10k commuting miles on my rear plugged tire (VStrom 650, Bridgestone Trail Wing tires with Dynabeads). Worm type plug in the middle of the rear tire. No issues. But my bike is no sportsbike either... and yes, I am cheap and base my well being on a worm plug.

You paid $75 to have a tire installed?

That's what that shack on the corner of hwy 6 and i-10 charges. I was that I had to start paying a yammy dealer $40 to do mine (since CG isn't worth the drive anymore) until I walked in to that place. At least they're good for a laugh, as soon as the guy said $75 I laughed myself to tears all the way back to my truck, and halfway back to katy yamaha.
