|This is the result of the rear-offside-inner tyre blow-out we suffered on the mystery tour 6th May 2013. Just coming into Greens Norton there was what sounded like an explosion or a very loud back-fire. We don't know if it was caused by an object puncturing it or whether the tyre or inner tube simply gave up the ghost. We managed to get to Towcester and had an hour's break there. After consulting a couple of experts by phone, and since the damaged tyre was the inner one of the two, we decided to limp back to base at a rather slow rate of knots. We got back to St James without any further surprises.
