I pulled my scooter out yesterday. Back tire was flat. So I air it up. Start rolling it forward until I find a nail. Had a hard time getting it out, but did and plugged the whole. Went out and did what I had to do. I keep thinking whether I should get a new tire or not. This tire has at least another 8,000 miles on it. But you only have 2 wheels and in 12 days I doing a run down to Big Bend National Park. This is Southwest Texas on the Mexican Boarder. Not much out there. So I called the dealer and have a appointment for new tires. The front tire is about ready for a new one anyway. So here's my question. Do any of you run plugged tires for ant length of time. Other than to get home etc. Bad luck doing it, good luck doing it. I run elite 3's and they ain't cheap.
