The rear tire on my bike is bad. Like bad bad. I have an appointment on Monday to get it changed. The shop is about 25 miles away. The tire is REALLY worn in the middle. I know it’s a bad idea to ride it and not safe and all that. But what’s the real word odds that I’m gonna pop the tire if i granny it there? I really don’t have many other ways to get it there.

That is well past its use by date. You never noticed that it was wearing down? I wouldn't ride it.

Okay, know anyone with a trailer or pickup. If not remove the wheel and take it to the shop

I’ve seen worse but you’ll not get me to ride one like it but obviously it’s done. I would have thought your daily check would have reveled this much sooner. I have to ask, when was the last time you check the air pressure in that tire? Or are you hinting this all happens on your last ride? Just curious.

I bought the bike like this. I couldn’t pass it up. It’s a 99 wide glide Harley in mint (obviously other then tires) condition for 700
Bucks. I almost cried as I counted out the money. Lol. I’ve only had it for one day.

My bud is gonna trailer it. I was gonna ride it but they wouldn’t let me lol
Good choice. No sense risking that expensive scooter in a wreck. You got a great deal on that bike by the way. Hope you have many good years with it.(y) (y) (y)

I know a couple old school guys that would stab that tire if they saw it.
