PunctureSafe (update)

A cautionary tale.

Following a splendid time at the AGM in Portballintrae, topped off with a cracking ride down the Antrim coast on the Sunday morning with Toot, Glenda, Connor and John .T, I had the unpleasant experience of a rear wheel blow at top speed in the middle lane of the M2/M5.

Fortunately the “Nautilus” and I remained upright which I put down to PunctureSafe.

This is a product which is inserted into the tubes (as you may have seen on the earlier ULC website post here) as a preventive measure against punctures and in particular immediate blow-outs.

From the images (click to enlarge) you can see the scale of the tyre failure and the fact that the blow-out was controlled , providing a few extra vital seconds to slow down and maintain control, is testamount to the superb effects of PunctureSafe.

While there are no doubt other decent products out there, I have found Puncturesafe to be easy to apply and in my case possibly lifesaving.

I would also recommend we all regularly inspect tyre condition, pressures and wheel nuts, and if in doubt on a journey stop immediately and double-check all is well.

Ride safe.

Please post your interest on the ULC forum using the link below and advise which scoot/scoots and or other display material you can provide.

We also need volunteers to man ( or woman) the stand.

For those who’ve been before they will know its a good way to kickstart the season and see all the old faces coming out of their winter hibernation.

The ULC stand will be in the same location as previously, ie upstairs in the right hand corner above the main entrance.

Avanti ULC Lambrettisti!
