I still have the original wheel and tire from my goldwing. SO I have a motorcycle tire and a CT. I could mount either one in a few minutes. guess which one I have on the bike, since the first day I put it on?

It's a road near the Dragon. They shut it down for a hill climb and you are looking at the current record holder. It's basically a purpose built hillclimb car.
