..... In your opinion KM, how does Ride-On compare with the Rhino tire treatment as regards effectiveness and cost of treatment. I may need some new tires before this summer is over, and need to decide what to get.
I can not give any testimonials on the Rhinotire treatment, all I know about it is what I too see and read at their website...and yes their videos are imprressive.
Ride-On however is highly reccomended by the Yahoo group, and other forums. I have used it in my Vulcan and now use it in my FJR's tires. I must report that I have never had a flat, but then, it is entirely possibble I do have a punctured tire and don't know it...as I have read reports of several Vulcan owners, one reporting on his Goldwing, that when they went to have new tires mounted on their bikes, the shop discovered nails sticking out on he inside of their old tire. The Ride-On had sealed the leak, the nail was never noticed by the owner , and none of the bikes had any air leaks. This is also impressive in my opinion.
Ride-On looks to cost less, as I think I spent about 25 bucks to treat both tires on my FJR. The stuff remains liquid in the tire, and is actualy supposed to help balance the tire more. I can report that at 137mph the bike showed no symptoms of unbalanced wheels
The Rhino tire treatment costs more, and must be done by them, where Ride-On is owner applied. If I was looking to replace my tires I might seriously consider buying the treated tires directly from Rhinotire, but I think I would need to see some reports from folks I know that went that route themselves.
For the time being, I still reccomend Ride-On over any product on the market,for cost, ease of use, and the fact that I know the stuff works even after a few years sitting in the tire in both cold and hot weather....not so sure of the longevity of the Rhinotire treatment.
