Rideon Works

So, on my way home from work today, I was going about 65 mph. I heard a loud pop (over the sound of my stereo). I wasn’t sure what it was, I wasn’t sure if something fell off the bike so I looked in the mirror and didn’t see anything.

To be safe, I pulled over and got off to check if anything was damaged. Turns out, I was losing air out of the rear tire. Within 5 minutes there was no air left in the tire. Had I not heard the loud pop, I wouldn’t have even known I had a blow out.

I called my Allstate motorclub and had it towed the 30 miles to my local shop.

While waiting for the tow truck, I Amazon primed a new bottle of Rideon for my next tire.

Honestly, I think my tire was at the end of its life, and I wasn’t paying attention. I had 7k miles on it, Shinko 777.

My front tire went flat on the bottom in december because of valve stem leak. The ride on got between the rim and tire and wouldn't hold air. I took the tire off and had to sand tire and rim to get it off . I put the tire back on backwards as it had some wear on the left side . Handel's like a dream ! Never handled that good . I run Metzler front, Michelin rear . got a valve stem with nuts on it too. I didn't put ride on back in it . still thinking. Eo
