I'm slow, but steady.

Mounted up the M&H this weekend and can report that it fits on the front end of a '05 Rocket 3. A quick ride down the road resulted in nothing too surprising. I'll report more after a few more miles.

I scored a pair of M&H racemaster radial DOT drag front tire in 185/55-17 on eBay for $200 shipped, so if all goes well, I'll be in front tires for a few years now!

More to come...

Tire price is $66.51 with free std shipping in the USA. Above is a URL for an eBay seller in the USA has that tire. I was assured by seller that it is, indeed, 17" and NOT 16" as had been mistakenly advertised by another seller. Check for yourself before ordering, however. This works to replace a 180/55/17 motorcycle tire for a 5.0", 5.5", or 6" rim. Too wide for a 3.5" rim I'd think.

Fits the rear of BMW K-bikes running the 180/55/17 and, supposedly, clears the radius curve of their single swingarm, too.

Let us know how it fits.
Of course I just bought a 15" wheel & adapter from Claude....
