Since you ride at just under the sound barrier, I would play it safe and buy a new tire.
Yup... least you decided and I figured you'd go this direction with your job situation... but, later on if you change your mind, go with a Metz... you won't be sorry and you may rethink the SumoX thing as the 200 Metz alone gives it a bigger appearance than the Dun.well its a toss up I think, between the SumoX and a new tire....
but the wallet says plug n patch. so we have a winner
Everyone has different luck. A few years ago I put new tries on my H-D Ultra Classic & ran over a nail with the rear tire that very same day. Against my better judgment I plugged the tire with an $8.00 plug kit from AutoZone. I checked my tire pressure often & kept an eye on the plug. After around 9000 miles the cords were showing threw & the monsoon season was approaching so I decided to install new tires again. I personally never have had a problem with a plugged tire. However, for safety reasons, I recommend that you have a certified Honda tech install the best quality tire that is recommended for your bike.To Patch or Not To Patch???that is the question
what cb said.weigh it out 200.00, you lifeThat sucks... atleast you have more than 600 miles on the tire... had to replace my stock tire real early because of a sheet metal screw... I would replace the tire and save that one as a back up, but that is JMO
