Omg. A car tyre on a motorcycle. If its such a great idea why don't you mount one to the front as well? That way you don't have to use the sidestand. It blows my mind.....whatever. Can we get back to the circus now?

many do mount ct on front also... dbl dark side

I should clarify... I only use ct when traveling. I am usually pulling a trailer so I have a spare wheel/tire ready to go. Sometimes it's the mt, sometimes the ct.

MC tires on a car you say?

You're pulling their chain, right?

Double dark means using a rear M/C tire as front tire.

Seen that car. CalPoly does a lot of out-of-the-box but useless stuff with FSAE cars (and the electric equivalent like this one)...
Grean on paper, not so great in execution.

And those are scooter tires.

I'm sure they don't last long with constant camber, the "right" way to do it would be with camber steer.

If your natural riding results in 2/3rds chicken strips, you can always do this.

That's actually pretty awesome. If I tried that, I'd fall over.

put a brick on the ground with the large area and then put it on its side with the small area, the amount of force to be used to move the brick is the same. nothing to do with contact patch.

If I'm sitting on the wrong side of the bike like that, it's some crazy sharp corner and I'm on a supermoto with a boot out....
