Oh yes of course I will be hanging off and dragging my knees.

That should cover everything.

Tell Killboy to have his camera ready. We need some more pics.

You are using Amsoil in your bike, right?
I'm still new here and I even I know these pretty much sum up ADVRider.

I think I have mentioned to you before that the technical name for this is "camber thrust". Now for the sad news... "there are a lot of fools out there". But it only gets worse... a car tyre on the rear means that all the "camber thrust" effect must be borne on the front tyre. Don't worry for there is still worse news to come. Most proponents of the "dark side" (perhaps dork is a better description) ride a bike where the rake and trail limit the steering inputs to the rider (cruiser style bike) so the task to respond and recover to steering adjustments require more effort. To remove the "camber thrust" effect of the rear tyre is just going to make that task even more difficult. Perhaps not impossible but certainly more difficult even to the point of just dangerous.

All of this extra effort for what purpose? Longer tyre life of the rear tyre but the front is wearing away at an enormous rate and if you get it wrong then all that crome and bling is going to cost a lot more than the cost of a proper motorcycle rear tyre.

IMHO if a rider doesn't understand the dynamics of the motorcyle they should take up knitting.

This proves what? Moderate lean angles?

And the inner and outer diameters of the contact patch were less significant than a real motorcycle tyre. Exactly my point. So glad you agree.

Fails to stay on the correct side of the road, even at that moderate lean angle. Goto 2:13 on the vid, crosses the yellow and starts to throw gravel from the center of the roadway. Maybe he'd be more convincing if he demonstated some actual riding ability, but he is riding some sort of 'cruiser' so I guess that we shouldn't expect much.

cheers,

If we have to argue about things, lets at least discuss the curves one might encounter on US129

I thought the only reason to mount a plate vertically was for riding in the dirt so when you fall down the plate doesn't rip shit up.
