IMHO, unless it was raining 'cats and dogs', I'd have Ridden That Tire home!!
My life, my choice.
It was his choice!
One can have a flat tire almost as easily on a Brand New tire as easily as a worn-out tire, all it has to BE, is long enough, sharp enough!
If Anything raises a Question in your mind, regarding 'Safety', error on the side of caution! I have!!! And I Usually wear my rear tire, til 'bald' in one spot, some times beyond (no cords showing, please)!
Disclaimer, I Know my chosen tire Brand/model intimately!
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
