**Cruise to Adams Morgan...Rear Tire Gash/Slashed...Anyone else??? - May 9, 2009, 01:11 PM

Went on an evening cruise last night to Adams Morgan. Grabbed some grub then rolled before the rain started. Buddy noticed a HUGE gash in the rear tire this morning. All the way to the cords and real clean almost surgical looking. I'm guessing box cutter...anything on the street would have a more "torn" look to the cut. Looks like there were two cuts a starter that goes about half way down then a second cut down to the cords. Arrrrrgggghhhhh! Rain all week now I'm down til next weekend waiting for a new tire. Guess the upside is I'll pop new sprockets and chain on. First gear on the R6 kinda bogs which I don't like.

Anyone else had this happen???

He would've noticed a flat riding home...I doubt someone slashed it.

It's possible that you may have hit something...I've seen tires split open from debris before and the cuts were very clean.

well I doubt someone would slash cut your tires down your tire....if it was slashed it would've been across.

I've seen a tire that had a clean cut around it where the license plate was dragging on the tire after a bolt feel out. More than likely you ran over something like a piece of metal...grate/rain drain that had a sharp point to it and it was long enough to make a gash???

What do you value more? Life or Image?
