Pretty cool, but looks loud and I don't get the tires?

Tires are Avon Distanzia. Great tires IMHO . They stick, last a long time and have a rugged look. What's not to love ?

Shit, I thought they were a set of period Wehrmacht tires pulled off a BMW shot dead on it's way to Stalingrad.

They are dual sport tires, good ones, but don't stick as well as pure pavement tires. And that bike seems very unlikely to ever see dirt?

It would if I owned it.

It's crude looking, obnoxious, and loud. Everything a motorcycle should be.

It's beastly and antisocial, in the way that Harleys want to be but aren't. Coolest bike I've seen in a long, long time.

Excellent tires, great in all weather, and stick like glue. I haven't rund a set of tires short of super stickey Pilot Power that stuck as well. For the look, that was a great choice!

I'd love to take that thing for a spin. The tires I think on this custom are more form than function.
