And it appears that he is looking through the turn. Well trained indeed

Flat profile tires make absolutely perfect sense for a trailer that does not lean into turns.

The question is at whose expense. As he is clearly taking the side of using automobile tires (based on earlier postings) the sarcasm in his post seems directed at those who think rounded profile tires make the most sense for a two track vehicle.

Live and let live, I always say. If he wants to declare "I'm a cheap dumbass", then nothing does that better than a car tire on a motorcycle.

Well, except for duct tape....

I was getting the jump on those who would say only trailer tires should be on trailers......

Actually the whole car tire thing is disturbing because those who are sure that it's wrong are getting in the way of those who are doing it successfully.

Wow. That just reinforces every cliche about dumb Southern hicks. Sunbelt states are gonna spend millions of taxpayer dollars trying to undo what this video has done to their reputation.

Stirring the pot. The car tire can't lose grip in a turn because the foot pegs grab the asphalt holding the bike on the road.

Everybody knows yer 'sposed to wrap the tape in the opposite direction of 'driven' rotation so it stays on longer.
