A doughnut spare has the right round profile. Is there a reason one of them wouldn't last on a bike?
These POS doughnut tires have ALWAYS been rated for getting you to a repair shop at a slow speed. There's absolutely no way that I'd put one on a Goldwing! Heck, I've always refused to even keep one in my cars....Those recommendations are for mounting it on a car, what would they recommend if it were a motorcycle tire? Does anyone know how they are constructed differently? Why 50 mph? I'll do some research myself, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're as strong as a motorcycle tire.
AMEN brother!!!!!These POS doughnut tires have ALWAYS been rated for getting you to a repair shop at a slow speed. There's absolutely no way that I'd put one on a Goldwing! Heck, I've always refused to even keep one in my cars....
Your a man after my own heartI didn't realize that about some new cars being without spares! I'm 58, an electrician and have always been hell bent on doing everything possible myself on my toys, my home, my truck my boats, etc....It infuriates me how "my kind" are being weeded out. Most crap made these days is intentionally made to NOT be user friendly.
Yeah.....my grandmother had a GE washer for probably 30 yrs. I have in my garage now a freezer that my grandmother had, when I was a CHILD! I just bought a Maytag washer because the THIRD LG that we had in 12-13 yrs died!! My Samsung refrigerators ice maker hasn't worked in months......I'm fed up..😤😤😤😤😤Your a man after my own heart
I am a math teacher, raised working by my dad's side as a mechanic, I do it all myself if at all possible
these "google machines" make it easy to figure out how to if you don't already
the new "no spare" thing started with all the mini vans with the stow and go seats that just fold up into the floor, no place for one
but then you can kind of think........ when was the last time you put the spare on the ground
my wife's Camry is an 06, spare has been on the ground once, just because I decided to drive it to get the flat fixed instead of pulling it off and tossing it in the back of my truck
fridge with water and ice despensor, part broke........... can't get just that one simple part, have to buy the whole thing,
wrong....... for a while I had the switch taped to the door, just push it,..... until my JB Weld and fine wire wrapped glue up job cured,..... has been working for 5 years
NOPECome on fellows. Do your part to contribute to the momentary economy. You can't buy the past, you can only keep on affording the future.
Motorcycle tires have come a long way in the last 30 years. 30 years ago, if you could get 10K out of a motorcycle tire you're doing very good, today one can expect anywhere from 14 to 18K, depending on your riding style. Motorcycle tires experience very different stress than a car tire, hence, the way they are constructed, stiffer sidewalls, multi compound tread and thinner tread. Most car tires are constructed with only one type of tread compound that encompasses the entire tire and they have much thicker tread.It's just ridiculous how short the life span of a bike tire is. I guess it's possible that in the design phase, engineers have to overkill the traction on a bike tire to avoid liability issues, but I guess it's also possible that they want u to keep buying tires as quick as possible. I see an opportunity for someone with the means to, to build tires with automotive characteristics, but round profile, perfectly suited to darksider applications, but marketed for trailers or something. Where I live, lots of people have food stamps, you can't buy hot or prepared meals with food stamps. But there's a pizza joint, that, because pizza is a hot meal, loses lots of income because they can't cater to low income. So what they did, was to sell take and bake pizzas, which can be paid for w food stamps, and then for 1 dollar cash, they will cook it for you.
