That is really pathetic. Either buy your own tires and install them or just let the dealer or bike shop do it. If you need to save those couple of dollars get a friend to follow you with the tire in a cage.
I've carried that way before.No big deal really.I had two tires though.A rear worn as above and a front tire over shoulder across chest.delivered them to a another shop from the shop I was in at the time.Guy had to have tires ,we had them I was going that way anyway so...
I wondering though what's on the front of his bike?
I carried a tire this way once. I rode almost 100 miles from columbus. Wrapped an old shirt around the front of the tire to keep it from scuffing the tank. Hey anything to save a buck! It really wasnt that bad other than getting on and off the bike, that was a little more tricky than one would think.
