Oh sure, probably trade it for top dollar, without full disclosure that the steer tire was possibly overloaded due to a drive tire blowout and the sad dealer will just pass the whole mess onto the next sucker! Shame is right!

Tire covers.......tire covers!!!!! Sounds like they weren't covered during the down time. That's all I have to say about that!

Operator probably used the stab jacks to lift the chassis off the ground, bent the frame and threw the suspension out of alignment causing the rear brake to lockup prematurely. A good indication that this is due to the original purchaser not relaying to the operator the instructions from the dealer's PDI/walk thru'. Shame on the original purchaser!

Just to keep things safe till the new ride hits the barn I suggest an all wheel alignment and spin balance.

Hmmm, appears to me that tire was left out in the sun too much, seein' as how it's bleached out totally white. /snark

Did Daddy's Girl get a PINK replacement tire? I hear those pink ones aren't made "over there" but I could be wrong on that.

That tread wear looks suspicious. Are you *sure* you didn't have that baby girl's bike on a rack mounted on that insufficient back bumper, causing it to sag and end up dragging that tire all the way from LA to TN?

Had to edit; forgot my thingies.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

For sure. This whole thread started with a laugh this morning. Was sitting outside getting caffeined up, looked over at the garbage can and grinned. Well, to all those who posted on this thread today, a huge thank you from me. I normally don't stay logged on all day, but today I did just to read the replies and laugh. Kept me laughing all day.

I'm thinking he used a BAL X-chock and it caused the tire to blow!
