First time this has ever happen to me, two up, just cross the border into Nevada. Front end started to bounce. Pulled over, and looked at the front end. Holy shit! My front tire looked like the Elephant Man. I was in a bad spot so I figured I would go to the next exit. No go, the wheel had expanded so much that it jammed against the fender. I had to take off the fender and deflate the tire so that it wouldn't rub against the mounting brackets for the fender. Anyway, had to trailer the bike home, reinflated the tire for picture taking, but by the time I started to take the picture it blew so all I can show you guys is where the tire split apart, right down the middle. I sent the tire back to Mez. I have not heard from them. Oh yea, under 9k miles on tire.
