“The rear tyre on my motorcycle was repaired against the advice of the manufacture”

What happened?

The rear tyre on my motorcycle was repaired against the advice of the manufacturer (Dunlop)

Michelin, is the only manufacturer that recommends that its Z rated tyres can be repaired in accordance with the previous BSAU159e.

I had no idea of this repair and had only purchased the bike a week ago from a main dealer. The incident could have ended very badly, and I was fortunate to be able to control the bike to the hard shoulder.

As an owner of a powerful sports bike I always look after my ride, however on this occasion I was torpedoed by an unseen threat.
