Thanks for the welcome.

mookymoo... It was the previous owner. Problems have an European motorcycle in a Spanish body.

Works for me also... I'm not a tall man.

It also makes faster entry to the curves

Just about to say the same thing. Advantages are collecting dirt samples for later analysis.

Seems to allow it to hook up better out of corners and better braking. Still fantastic on the road. Suits me well.

Rear tire mounted backward

Modern tires have there internel belts run in a way to handle monster power from braking and acceleration. Basicly the rear tire has the belts run to handle acceleration, the front tire has the belts run to handle breaking forces. You can run a rear tire backward on the front wheel , but it is not recomented to run a front tire backward on the rear, and NEVER run the tire backward in its intended location. Make sence? Probably never be a problem if you never accelerate heavily or break hard.

Bi-directional tyre O' rhone illegitimate one
