you guys should see this tire. I have never seen anything like it. it looks like a knife cut to the cords, but its not in a straight line across the tire. plus tires are hard to cut like that. i will get a pic posted soon. almost like the rubber split from a factory defect.

i have seen that before. i did it to one of my tires heading to New Mexico. i ran over a rv window frame on the highway. i rode it out and changed my bald split tire in Albequerque.

The chain on my brothers Honda rebel was very loose. His adjuster was broke and he decided it was no big deal. The chain cost us an hour on the side of the road. Then when he rolled it back on it snapped on the sprocket but also caught a bolt on the exhaust and was guitar string tight. Luckily there was somebody in the park where we were taking a break that had a flat blade screwdriver that we used as a pry bar while trying to roll the bike and dislodge the chain. We got home and got the chain adjusted.

As for my tire, I never ran anything over except a few rail road crossings. None of which were all that rough.
