Riding along on my 76 goldwing I pull up to a stop light as I take off I noticed a clunking as i go through the gears.So I cut my trip short and head toward the house.5 min later rear wheel locks up tighter than dicks hat band i slide about 150ft down the street and was able to get it into the right lane that was thankfully closed for construction never laid it down but the rear tire had a bald spot about the size of a grapefruit.When i finally got it home I tore into it and found the universal joint had exploded and jammed the drive shaft.
