Guys, I think the issue is the swingarm I am using wasnt designed for running street tires. Since I already have a really nice tire I plan on running that. Nothing touches yet, if it does I'll shave the corner until it clears. Next tire I will check with the guys at super moto junkie as they usually know what tires work. Bambi, I remember. I was this close to buying an aprilia futura in milan and keeping there as a time share with buddies. Deal fell apart though. Would be fun to ship this bike over. Little lacking in the touring dept though.
