This is based on dynosheets I found through google.
I'm surprised at how low the peak torque of the HD is. I'm sure it's a flatter curve, but I figured the peak would be higher than the Zuke.

So lets hear it from a "darkside" rider. Hows the cornering performance of a square tread? At what pressure?

Try a search, no need to clog up the PICTURE thread with "car tires are stupid" vs. "car tires are great" discussions.

Fair enough. I am infatuated with everything Strom. Whether that's pictures of your bike or hearing how you run it. I'll keep lurking and watching the show. I dont know if I have shared this one before, but "I'll show you mine if you show me yours".

Nothing wrong with a car tyre on a Strom.

Well, In your case it kind of makes sense, since you do have a car attached to your Strom...

Here's my '10 Vee

It's been stripped of all lettering and logos but has an unusual decal on the tank. I can't find it on Google. Anyone know what it is?
