Rear tyre goes flat

By johndavidson - Published on 06 February 2012

What it's like when the rear tyre on a Rocket III deflates rapidly at 110 km/hr. Fun for all the family! Things start to go weird at 13 secs, when the bike starts to drift left. It needs more and more correction until 23 secs, when the tyre loses pressure entirely, and the bike pulls abruptly to the right as the tyre breaks from the rim. The rest of the video is getting off the road before something bad happens. The bike is never dropped, but it was an effort to keep it up.
