How trustworthy is a plug in a motorcycle tire?

ive been 150 on my plugs.
if they do come out you lose air slowly. the steering becomes real difficult but not impossible. might not want to do it on a front tire though.
at least it'll get you to the bike shop

Do you have an air pump? Fill it up and see how mad the leak is. 9 times out of 10 it is a very slow leak. You will be able to ride it to a shop. Let me know if you need any help.

He needs to stop with people and nothing will happen to him.

The tire was me! I told him not to pass me.

Buy Yourself a plug kit and co2 kit. It'll fit in your storage compartment. I'd help you out but I'm tied down today. 361-649-8733. Call me if you want to pick up my stands.

I also have my mtb hand pump if you really need it lol
