HOW-TO: Handle a Tire Blowout - February 22, 2006, 07:33 AM

Motorcycle tires rarely blow with a bang. Follow these useful steps in the event of a tire blowout and you will decrease the risk of damage to your bike while minimizing the risk of danger to yourself and others.

1. Front tire air loss is particularly dangerous because it will make your motorcycle difficult to steer. Shift your weight as far back as possible when the front tire loses air pressure.

2. Expect the back of the motorcycle to lurch from side to side if the rear tire starts to go flat. Stay seated as you are.

3. Hold the hand grips tightly and concentrate on steering. Maintain as straight a course as possible.

4. Gradually apply the brake on the tire that is not flat (provided you're sure which one that is). Wait until the motorcycle slows way down, then edge toward the side of the road and stop.
