I certainly can't claim to put 10,000 miles on a bike in a month, though I've come close a few times on long trips, that were few and far between. Trips like that is where the best designed part of the Vulcan 750, the seat, really shines.
But back to Ride On. I use it and recommend it in tubeless tires. It would be practically worthless in tube type tires, because motorcycle tubes are paper thin, and tend to explode when punctured, ripping a big hole in them. If by chance that doesn't happen, whatever punctured them will wiggle around and cut them up by the time you get stopped. My best advice about tube type tires is to avoid them at all costs, unless you have a centerstand, and are willing to remove the wheel, then remove the tire, put in a new tube, put the tire back on the wheel, and the wheel back on the bike. All beside the road. Yes I've done it many times. With a centerstand. Without one, all you can do is just stand there and look at it and hope help comes along.
I have Metzler ME880s on my Vulcan, that are about half worn out. I have Ride On in both of them. I also have 2 plugs in the rear one, and unless one of them becomes irreparably damaged, I intend to use them till they are worn out. I see no danger in doing this. The tire carcass is very strong ans well reinforced. Even if a plug came out, the Ride On would seal it, and even if the Ride On failed to seal completely, it would lose air so slowly that you would have plenty of time to notice the problem and get pulled over, where you could simply install another plug, air it up, and be on your way.
I feel the same way about replacing a nearly new (and expensive) tire, just because it has a small hole in it. Unless it has serious damage, it is still completely safe. Go ahead and wear it out. I feel the same way about this that I do about wearing too much gear. Both are just a bit over the top. Both take things to extremes, well beyond reason. The only bike related issues I go that far on is riding skills and maintaining my bikes. Riding skills, unlike gear, is something that nobody has enough of. Keep practicing your entire riding life. Aim for perfection, even though it is unattainable. Riding skills will keep you from crashing, gear won't. Keeping your bike properly maintained not only makes it a lot safer, but just as important, it makes it last a lot longer.
Yeah, I got a bit carried away, but IMO, ATGATT and replacing a brand new tire because it has a tiny hole in it is also getting carried away. I think motorcycle safety would benefit from the use of a little more common sense. Jerry.
