Folks ask and it happens - a tire has puncture so why can't we plug it like cars?

Here is my front tire on a twisty. Watch it flex and think of what pressure changes happen. Now think if you would trust a plug or patch to keep you safe.

I've often plugged bike tyres, and had them do fine, even some trackdays. I think car tyres go through just as much stress and deformation! :)

I've plugged a rear, ridden 1000km+ then did a trackday. Obviously not saying its a 100% solution, but for me its been 10+ plugs over 10 years.
