Actually wasn't as bad as one thinks as I was on a straight piece of road. Scared my buddy who was just behind worse than it scared me. The tire went off like a shotgun blast on my '99 FXST, instantly flat, no problem until I let off the throttle, then the front end felt a little funny. Coasted to a stop without touching brakes or making any sudden manuevers. Glad I wasn't in a high speed sweeper at the time....Last time I had a blowout like this it was on a back tire and it landed me in a ditch. Haven't had time yet to diagnose what happened yet only that I have pulled the front wheel and have found no punctures or marks on the tire, so just the tube blew out. I put a new rim strip, tube and tire on 2000 miles ago so I don't think it would be a pinched tube. Only thing I can think of is the tire went low and heated everything up and Kapow! I tested air pressure just before I left to meet my buddy, pressure was at 36 psi. Normally I make sure after testing the stem is not leaking but I did not so that this time as I was late to meet my buddy for breakfast 110 miles away. I was late so I sustained 80-90 mph speeds to make up time. Met him, had breakfast then this happened about 50 miles after. Any theories out there?
