Looks like a steel trailer/car wheel and a car tire.
My guess is that he's more concerned with long wear than with cornering ability, especially if all that luggage is packed full.

Why the concern over the car wheel? I doubt it will fail due to overloading.

I wouldn't make that switch, but I don't see it as dumb or dangerous.

A friend of mine did that to his Valkerie . I just figure he doesn't care about the switch backs .
I don't see a safe issue just a fun issue ...........

Open your eyes!

D-siders dangerously force car tyres onto incompatible motorcycle rims often using air pressure at levels warned against in tyre industry standards.

MOTORCYCLE TIRES


Quote:
Tire Mounting

Danger: Only specially trained persons should mount tires. Improper mounting can cause tire explosion and serious injury.

Follow these mounting precautions:

  • Wear approved eye protection.
  • Clean and lubricate beads and rim.
  • Centralize rim band and tube to prevent pinching if tube-type rim. *Note directional arrows on sidewall where applicable.
  • Lock assembly on mounting machine or place in safety cage before inflating to seat beads.
  • Set air hose relief valve at 40 psi.
  • Use extension gauge and hose with clip-on air chuck. Stand back with no part of your body within the perimeter of the assembled tire and rim.
  • Inflate with core in valve stem.
  • Never inflate above 40 psi to seat beads.*
  • Spin wheel to check bead seating and alignment.
  • *If the beads do not seat by 40 psi, deflate and repeat above procedures. Never use a volatile substance or rubber "donut" to aid bead seating. If the tire is a tube-type, deflate and reinflate after seating to prevent tube wrinkles.
  • For 15-inch motorcycle replacement tires, never mount on a 15-inch diameter passenger car tire rim. Passenger car and motorcycle rims actually differ in diameter.
  • Never mount passenger car tires on motorcycle rims.
Since that looked like a car-style rim on the rear of that BMW, its unlikely that the safety limit of 40psi was exceeded in the process of mounting the tyre.

In contrast I read a post where an actual D-sider boasted of using 100psi to force a CT to seat on a motorcycle rim.

It was true LONG AGO but it is no longer a joke if it is just outdated parroted Bullshit.

It is like "Don't use the front brake, you'll go over the handlebars"

Or: "Had to Lay 'er down to avoid a crash"

I joke about Harley's (and all feet forward bikes) all the time (and as you know I sell them)
Sheesh, leave town for a few days only to come back in and realize everybody's been threadshitting on me.

If I knew the standard for the Killboy thread was to only tell jokes that have never been told before... oh, wait, that's never been the standard in this thread.

I mean, I *could* have made my joke, and then added, "Just kidding, I like H-Ds, I know in 2013 they're great bikes," but that would be ruining the ancient joke passed down from our forefathers for 205 years.

P.S. Nice of you to go checking in my profile Dakez for your own lazy joke, I haven't updated it since I got here. The GF totaled the Vespa last fall, I've got a fun little Ninja 500 rusting in the driveway, and if the tax man is nice to me I'm picking up a new CBR250 in a few weeks. But I still love my Spyder, too.

P.P.S. Harley has NOTHING on my Spyder when it comes to leaking oil. That thing blows oil out its airbox like it's a snotting whale nostril. Hold a Spyder rally at the Pentagon and we'd ditch the Middle East for good.

Not another CT love/hate thread! Let's save some time and sum it up:
"I've run one for ??? thousand miles, had no problems and will continue to do so"
"I've never run one but YOU CAN'T DO THAT!"

BTW, you need little to no air pressure to set the CT bead on the MC rim. The problem is mounting the effing tire. The ME880 is almost as difficult.
