I got a question for everyone. I have an 01 that I want to ride to Deal's Gap in NC. That is about a 6.5 hr ride. Will the Rotax take 70mph for that distance or should I just trailer the bike?...

+1 on the 7.5's. That's what I have on mine. Even with the 7.5's I find myself wishing they were a little wider. Heck, a 30 pack of beer can't fit in them unless you unload them from the box.:beer
