Why does my rear tire always get a nail?
This is the third time I've picked up a nail in the back tire on a motorcycle... this tire happened to be a relatively new, somewhat expensive Pilot GT on my Concours. I ended up replacing it with a $60 Cheng Shin because I'm tired of throwing away money, and I heard good things about this particular tire on my bike so I'm giving it a try.
But I don't get it, I never pick up nails in my car. It has four big, fat tires, and I'm generally a quite reckless as to where I drive it. I don't see how I'm so good at picking up nails with the little sliver of rubber on my MC which only touches nice clean pavement.
Big Government is a problem, not a solution.
