Road Dirt west coast writer/rider Ted Edwards had been (rightly) carrying around a Stop & Go Pocket Tire Plugger kit for years, but like many of us, never had occasion to need it. So when he purchased a new rear tire to mount on his Honda VFR, Ted decided to make a science experiment out of it. Not surprising, given his years of experience as an educator.
An old tire, a long wood screw, a power drill, a tire repair kit, and a rather enthusiastic motorcycle “do-it-yourselfer” with a quirky sense of humor…what could possibly go wrong here?
Actually, not a thing. The plug worked like a charm, even after he did several smoky burnouts (oh yes he did). And his instructional/chronicle video is not only quite informative, its also quite entertaining. We’ve come to expect nothing less from Ted.
