I believe it is the angle the pic was taken and how the body panels sit in relation to one another that is makeing it look off color.

In the case of the car tire it's all the effort the "darksiders" put into trying to convince themselves and everyone else that it's a good idea that gets the push back.

I completely respect my friends that run car tires on their wings. They respect the fact that if the last 100 miles of a rally are "too damn curvy" I'll be having fun and they'll be time barred.

Maybe in my elder years I'll come around.

In the mean time I think it looks retarded and is blasphemous to the moto.

Keep 'em coming. I can't believe you passed on the opportunity to throw an Arkansas joke in there, too...

The only exercise I get is exercising a little restraint!

I really couldn't care less either. That being said, when someone actually makes a video trying to show that the car tire is a good idea, and others post that video in an effort to show that the car tire is a good idea, those people become perfect targets for internet mockery. And really that's why we're all here, right?

I saw that video in another thread last week and thought about posting it here just to but the hot toppic that day was something about those yellow lines in the road and people running over them.

Actually, I don't believe they do- The Dunlop family is, IIRC, Irish.

Something spectacularly whacko about that family; Joey's brother, and his nephews, also race there. Well, raced- his brother (Michael?) died there.

Meh the car tire thing is so over rated.

We need to go back to bickering about hanging off.

I want to see Outlaws Justice get trolled again.

3 for 3.

1. Synthetic oil
2. Car Tire
3. Trailer
I must be crazy or crazy stupid.

Sorry, no pics of the oil.
