How a Flat Tire Can Cost Big Money

Posted on

Here's a story, a true story...

We met a nice gentleman and his wife at a motorcycle rally who shared this nightmare with us. They left home early on a Saturday morning with the intention of being gone for the weekend. The plan was to overnight somewhere and return Sunday, then go to work Monday morning. When they came out of a restaurant after dinner on Saturday night (300 miles from home), they discovered a roofing nail in the rear tire of their brand new Harley-Davidson Road King.

“That’s no problem, he said to his wife, I belong to H.O.G.”

So he made the call to the nearest H.O.G representative who swiftly showed up and hauled the bike off to the nearest Harley dealer. You see, H.O.G folks don’t repair tires, they represent the dealers best interest. Now the story gets good…. The Harley dealer is closed on Mondays. So this poor couple got a hotel room near the restaurant on Saturday night and waited there until Tuesday morning when the dealer sold them a new tire.

Flat Tire Cost

Now you do the math…..two nights in a motel, a brand new tire, the labor to install it, a day's pay lost. All this because they weren’t prepared with a Stop & Go kit. You see they could have plugged that tubeless tire and re-inflated it on the spot in about 10 minutes.

This is why an affordable Stop & Go tire plugger in your pouch can save you hundreds of dollars down the road. Learn how the tire plug works to fix your flat tire with our step by step instructions and video.
