I'm not sure you'll be happy blasting along at 70 on 10" or 12" tires. My Helix is shod with 10"and 12" tires and up over about 55 it begins to feel a bit squirrely. The stability offered with larger tires at speed is really nice. But who knows, you might feel OK with it, I know a lot of people are.

'07 Norge - the fast red one
'03 Honda Shadow 750 - Rocky
'99 Honda Helix - Little Zippy
'76 Honda CJ360T
