I run a car tire, on the front wheel only. The rear is bias ply.

I use synthetic car oil from my favorite pyramid scheme oil distributor.

I wear all the gear all the time. By that I mean sometimes I wear pants while motorcycling.

My gun is in my tankbag.

I run into the oncoming lane when taking corners because it's faster that way.

My (pink) R1200GS has been offroad, if you define 'offroad' to mean 'parked in two spaces at starbucks'.

tedder screwed with this post 02-26-2013 at 02:09 PM Reason: color of r12gs

The CT is used by people who understand that their riding style doesn't require a performance oriented motorcycle tire. I personally don't give a rats ass what kind of tire any give rider runs as long as he rides within his and the tires limits.

Wow, it's the perfect answer for chicken strips. It is also pretty foolish considering how motorcycle tires work when cornering:

Just because your not paranoid doesn't mean poor tire choices aren't out to get you.

Too bad there isn't any other thread any where on this site that one could talk the pros and cons about car tires.

When the fuck are we going to get back to talking fashion?

fashion? i think that darkside bmw looks freaking awesome! i also find it interesting that the owner says it handles yust as well now as it did w/the m/c tires; that he can crank it over as far as he ever could. considering his riding experience, i suspect he's not a poseur. while not a cruiser, the gsa is one big heavy bike. and, the owner also said that's not a steel wheel either.

So after a too long winter the weather warms up enough to go for a ride. My first ride in months and am going to meet my riding buddy at our favorite coffee palace and he shows up with his PANTS TUCKED INTO HIS BOOTS! He says that it will keep the pant from sliding up the leg in a crash exposing the skin and that anyone who does not do this has no idea about how to properly wear MC safety gear. He then told me about how he learned this from some lady on youtube who provides videos about proper attire for riding. Seems that she became so popular she had to cancel her postings as it was burning up the internets.

I wonder if it's our old friend Little Native.

Did he have on a bandana?
