You guys can just use my real name Dan. Danimal was a nickname from my bicycle racing days.How do these things happen to motorcycle tires. The smallest contact patch of most vehicles on the road yet we get these in our tires. Mine wasn't new at all but it ruined my rim.
Did you keep the bolt Danimal, for a project or something?
If I have to pull the tire to patch it, I'll just throw a new donut on there. Tires=fuelI prefer plug-patches from the inside. Little rubber cement and someone who know how to do it properly and it'll last for a while.
Just don't do any 100+MPH runs on it and you'll be fine.
