Mine did it on my Road King Classic, luckily I was parked at my fathers house when I heard the hissing of air. I thought I had picked up a nail and almost crapped myself when I saw what had happened.

Mags can develop cracks. Been happening for years.

Look around. Almost every major city has a company that welds and polishes mags after they crack.

Rim Split

See my post "Wheel Crack" under "Touring Discussion", sounds like we have something in common. Would like to exchange photos with you if you have any. My pants are still good but $6K in repairs to bike kinda' hurts. Contact me....
