    Yes! Or the Triumph Tiger 800 XC, drool, drool. The one I have with 100 horses in an antique Honda ('83 Cx650 Turbo) that is a crazy blast. But the daily commuter is a stalwart '05 Suzuki DL650...

    That's the kind of tire herniation that usually happens to the sidewalls of old dry-rotted tires. Unless it was inflated WAY over capacity, or the tire torn internally by hitting a hard rut, I'd say...
