The downside? I'm taking that frakkin' Spyder, so look for plenty of photos of me parked halfway over a double yellow wondering why the pig won't lean.
I've had my Spyder on the Dragon. It was fun as hell. I even got featured on Killboy's site with one wheel up.

Well, it is getting close to March 4th, so I say "May the Fourth be with you" :-)

Going to have a high of 28 degrees tomorrow. I am planning a short lunch ride to the gas station. Baby steps. Spring is on the way!

Some of you folks may want to grab a few things. When I have more time the bus will be loading.



Think the ignore feature was mentioned already. If someone quotes something from your 'favorite inmate' you may be forced to do it the old fashioned way.

You do know way have a month called "May" too right?

That's why 5/4 is Star Wars day. I'm not sure what 3/4 is other than a drill instructor's command.

I'll be up at the Gap May 1-3 (maybe 4th and 5th too) with a bunch of other supermotos

No, but I have discussed it with an actual tire engineer from Michelin, who called it "foolish" and said he didn't know where to start when I asked him what the downsides were. I don't have any experience trying to clean a handgun without clearing it, but I don't need any to know it's not a good idea.

the only ones who sound like an idiotic bastards to me, are those who say how stupid it is w/o having any experience, when those who have tried say they will never go back.

JimVonBaden and Fallingoff please move to opposite ends of the internet.



Let's move this thread back to its regular derailment of Dragon Fail... and have some fun...

Have a great weekend

ya, i guess the michelin engineer has no skin in the game, either. and i guess he's also tried it, too?

sorry, but the consensus - from those who have actually tried it - is overwhelmingly positive. there must be a reason for this...

Yes, They get more miles for their dollar. (and they are not about to say it was a foolish mistake after they bragged about how great it is)

Again. If it was a good idea it would be an option from the factory on all new heavyweight cruisers and Sport Cruisers.

It is FOLLY to place a flat surfaced tire on a vehicle that leans to turn.

Rolling over on a side wall of an under inflated tire borders on lunacy. Remember the Firestone/ Explorer debacle? That was all due to FORD placing an unrealistically low air pressure recommendation so that people would stop complaining about the Explorer "Riding like a truck"

Too much flex it the tire caused excessive heat, tire separation and blow-outs.

Every time I hear a Dumbsider tout how great it is and how you run lower pressure to allow the tire to roll up on the side wall it makes me cringe. I will continue to speak out against stupidity every time it is spewed forth.

Well you get a bunch of Mexicans in a room and you'll find a consensus that giant floppy whale-tail wings are an improvement to any car. Doesn't mean it's true.

BTW, as far as Michelin engineers go, my girlfriend is one, along with about half a dozen other friends. I'm a mechanical engineer myself.
A car tire on a bike will not handle corners as well as a bike tire. Period.

On that note, a bike tire contact patch actually increases significantly in corners, the opposite is true for a car tire on a bike.

It will go down the highway just fine, and will last longer in that environment. That is the only conceivable advantage.
